The Brilliance of Renaissance Music.....

Blogger Ref http://www.youtube.com/Searle8


This is really for those who are largely new to Early Music....


....Anyway, this is a brief selection of the sheer colour, and diversity of Renaissance Music. In spite of their limitations, the instruments involved such as the rackett, sackbutt, lute, et al,  can produce a stunning, and rich varied  soundscape....of energy, and power
...For composers  such instruments can still be a great inspiration, and be useful in new compositions that could attract audiences the world over...
