    Some very old music yesterday and this morning

    Music from the 100 Years War. English and French religious choral music


    Elizabethan Consort Music. Normally, Jordi Savall's disks are really good, but this I find monotonous after a while


    Lawes Consort Music for Viols, Lutes and Theorbos. A nice disk


    Handel Coronation Anthems. Will I ever get to see a coronation in my lifetime? My parents were young children at the time of the last coronation and they only have vague memories of it.


    Great British cathedral anthems. Four hundred years of choral classics. The music of Tallis, Byrd, Gibbons, Stanford, Parry, Howells etc. I Was Glad I listened to this.
