Disc 2 of 3.

THE ART OF THE NETHERLANDS
The Early Music Consort of London
David Munrow, dir.

Seraphim via HMV

This was a posthumous release (1976), immediately following the tragic death of David Munrow. As such, it stands as a memorial to this gifted musician and musicologist, who loved jazz, British folk music (and folk-rock), and homemade instruments. Without a doubt, he was the man most responsible for the resurgence of Early Music in Britain and on the Continent, as well as the USA.

I know my musical tastes/appreciations were forever changed by this man's passionate work.

Any of his works (especially those with his Early Music Consort of London) are highly recommended.
