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.

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. Or simply click here to use your favourite player, if your browser is configured to do so.

Today’s programme is also being broadcast on an HE-AAC v2 stream at 88kb/s here, which should give you an even higher quality audio experience. You’ll need a player that can handle this format, such as VLC.
