The Early Music Show: Shakespeare’s Musick

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 the mar­vel­lous Musi­cians of the Globe, among many oth­ers.
