Harmonia Podcast #130: Theater Music of the English Renaissance



Philip Pickett seems to always have something to say through the music he records, whether as a soloist or with one of his ensembles (Musicians of the Globe or New London Consort).

It was only recently that I revisited (with delight) two recordings of theater music from the English Renaissance with the Musicians of the Globe. “Shakespeare’s Musick” was the more familiar—still a joy to listen to—while “Oberon” struck me as new and fresh.
