GreenMatthews • A Brief History Of Music (CD)
A Brief History Of Music - 600 years of musical history
Beginning in the Middle Ages and ending up in the 20th century (and incorporating everything in between!) this fun and fast-moving album is a whistle-stop tour of Western musical history.
Featuring long forgotten songs and tunes, GreenMatthews paint a vibrant and vivid picture of our musical DNA, mixing the familiar and the obscure, the raucous and the reflective and the courtly and the commonplace.
The album combines the vigour of the medieval period, the musical intricacy of the Renaissance, the grandeur of the Baroque and the pomp and bombast of Victoriana.
Complete with a bewildering array of instruments such as virginal, rauschpfeife and lute (and that’s just the first 100 years!) A Brief History of Music uses tunes, songs and humour to take you on a musical journey from which you won’t want to return!
