David Munrow

 & The Early Music Consort Of London
 "Renaissance Suite" (1974)

David Munrow was perhaps the greatest exponent of early music before his untimely death in 1976. He will be familiar to folk fans from his work in the late 60s with Young Tradition, Shirley & Dolly Collins and John Renbourn.

For some reason this album seems to have never been released on CD - perhaps because it is a soundtrack to an obscure French film about bicycle racing rather than an award winning television serial. This though, really deserves re-release. Here you'll find dance tunes from Praetorius and Susato along with original compositions by David Munrow.

Tracks:
01. Triumph (Hans Hassler: Intrada VI & VII from "Lustgarden")
02. They're off (Bransle double de Poictou & Bransle gay double from Praetorius' "Terpsichore")
03. Training (David Munrow: Bagpipe solo I & Bagpipe solo II)
04. On the Road (Basse danse "Dont vient cela" from Tielmann Susato's "Dancerye")
05. Complaint ("O death rock me asleep" Anon., 16th c.)
06. In the Mountains (Bransle simple from Praetorius' "Terpsichore")
07. The six days of Grenoble (David Munrow)
08. The Dream ("Tristan's Lament" Anon., Italy, 14th c.)
09. The Race Against Oneself (David Munrow)
10. Why Suffer ("Consonanze Stravaganti" Giovanni Macque)
11. Effort (Basse galliarde from Pierre Phalèse "Premier livre de Danseries" & Galliarde from Praetorius' "Terpsichore")
12. End Music (Variations on "La folie d'Espagne", Corelli & Division flúte (1706))

Wow turns David Munrow is a legend. If only I was born in the year when he was still at work, maybe I would like it very much.
