Today we present another edition of the Early Music Show; this time featuring “The Musick of Shakespeare” – music written to accompany the Bard’s plays, settings of some of the Sonnets, and other pieces ancient and modern.

The music stems primarily from the Renaissance, as one might expect, but there are also Baroque contributions, as well as modern pieces written in earlier styles, and some modern orchestral and other pieces. You’ll hear a number of excellent contributions from Philip Pickett and the marvellous Musicians of the Globe, among many others.
