A Memory of David Munrow


The following is an intro to a biographical tribute on David Munrow................


David Munrow did not just emerge into the field of medieval and Renaissance music - he exploded into it .. He established a standard that can now never be ignored, and the stimulating shock-waves from his explosion will carry far into the future.'
(SIR ANTHONY LEWIS )


When he died on 15 May last year David Munrow was only 33 years old, yet within the span of a decade he had widened the musical horizons of millions by his concerts, records, writings and broadcasts. Whether directing the EARLY MUSIC CONSORT OF LONDON or introducing Radio 3's Pied Piper, he radiated an intense enthusiasm which could leave his colleagues just as often exhausted as exhilarated.

Music from Great Houses

David Munrow and the Early Music Consort of London play music commissioned by Kings and Queens of England in the Elizabethan setting of Montacute House, Somerset
Music from the Renaissance and Reformation has become some thing of a cult, and has already been absorbed into the ' POP' scene.DAVID MUNROW introduces music from as early as the reign of Henry II through to the period of Elizabeth I , ranging in style from the elegant and courtly to the bawdy and scandalous.
He also conducts viewers round this National Trust property, which has strong connections with James I and the Gunpowder Plot.
