Elspeth of Nottingham

It’s really bizarre to admit that what really turned me on to Early Music wasn’t someone at a Renaissance gig, but this song.  Of course, the Dutch have been the pioneers of Early Music in my eyes (Kuijkens and Franz Brueggen).  Then I caught onto the City Waites with Roddy and Lucie Skeaping, who now is one of the hosts of Radio 3’s Early Music show.  Toss in all the other Early Musicians I know.

Sorry, it was thee Dutch Group Focus in the 1970s!
