Main: The Early Music Show

Today on our Main Stream, tune in for a day of Ear­ly Music per­for­mances. The music comes pri­mar­i­ly from the Renais­sance peri­od, and fea­tures pieces from many parts of West­ern Europe. How­ev­er, there are some 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. There are also some rous­ing mod­ern inter­pre­ta­tions.


Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin. Please click here to start your play­er if your brows­er is set up to pass streams to an exter­nal play­er. 

You can also lis­ten via TuneIn, either with their web site or via the TuneIn App.

Music of Scotland

On today’s pro­gramme, Elrik Mer­lin presents a vari­ety of Scot­tish and Scot­tish-influ­enced music, both tra­di­tion­al and con­tem­po­rary. The playlist ranges from Scot­tish Coun­try Dance, to pipe bands, to folk music in Eng­lish and Gael­ic, and orches­tral works inspired by the land and peo­ple of the Scot­tish nation.

In addi­tion today we are fea­tur­ing Karine Pol­wart’s brand-new Scot­tish Song­book album.

Saturday At The Movies

Today we present a pro­gramme of movie and tele­vi­sion music. Along with a few recent releas­es, you’ll hear a bunch of favourites, clas­sics and oth­er film and TV music going back to the dawn of the genre. There’s per­haps a slight bias towards SF and F, but it’s only slight — and this time, we’re fea­tur­ing some great video game sound­tracks too.

Pick up some pop­corn and some­thing wet and fizzy and set­tle back in the best seat in the house – your own.
