' David Munrow did not just emerge into the fietfd 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.
