  • About This Album

    Before 1500, composed music flourished primarily where wealthy patrons could afford to maintain substantial musical establishments—in churches, royal palaces, and at the courts of nobleman. David Munrow leads The Early Music Consort of London here in performances of this early music, drawing from the repertory of France, Germany, Italy, and Spain.
