music of 15th/16th century: good sources?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

recently was reminded of how much i love the Coventry Carol and other 15th/16th century music of western Europe.  anyone have suggestions for where i could listen, or artists to look up to get better acquainted with this music?  i enjoy both secular and sacred songs.

 

(not sure how my musical tastes can include punk, folk, blues, and renaissance, but that's the case shrug.gif.)

 

thanks for any suggestions.

I'm an emusic.com subscriber and I just looked, they have a bunch of medieval/renaissance music there. 343 albums have that tag.

They've changed a lot over the past few years, so I'm not sure I really want to recommend them, but it may be worth it for a month or two for you.

Have you heard of Mediaeval Baebes? They are an all female band that does medieval music. Some stuff from as early as the 10th & 11th centuries. They are amazing!

Try the Revels Store. Revels is an organization that puts on Solstice shows of traditional music, much from the time period you like. Browse the holiday CDs in their online store and see if your library has any.

I particularly like this one:

I am a big fan of the Coventry Carol as well, and I suggest you check out Kitka's Wintersongs.

For fun, you could try Baltimore Consort's album The Art of the Bawdy Song.

We like Syntagma Amici.  I'll have to check out Baltimore Consort's Bawdy Song, we have some of their other work and I love it!
