The Early Music Show, feat. Blondel

blondelToday we’re pre­sent­ing a pro­gramme of Ear­ly Music, fea­tur­ing this time the gor­geous debut album by Blondel: Zephirus: his sweete breeth. Blondel, a UK-based Ear­ly Music group con­sist­ing of Belin­da Paul, Emi­ly Baines, Lizzie Gut­teridge and Daniel Ser­afi­ni, per­forms Mediæ­val and Renais­sance music on shawms, bag­pipes, cur­tals, recorders and ear­ly brass instru­ments. And bril­liant they are too. Read more about them here. You can buy the album at CDBa­by as a disc or a down­load.

The music for today’s pro­gramme also includes a great many oth­er artists, and comes pri­mar­i­ly from the Renais­sance peri­od,  with music from many parts of West­ern Europe. How­ev­er, there are some live­ly ren­di­tions of a few Mediæ­val pieces too. Many of the per­for­mances use orig­i­nal instru­ments and attempt to recre­ate the authen­tic sound of the pieces at the time they were writ­ten.


Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin. If you are in the Unit­ed States or Cana­da, please click here to launch the Stream Licens­ing play­er. You can also lis­ten via TuneIn.
