What you're about to read is a collection of pointers to some of the music I've discovered on the iTunes Music Store, music I like enough that I want to share it. If you're an iPod owner and an iTunes fan (and if you aren't, what are you doing here?), maybe you'll find something new. Click on any of the CD covers to bounce over to the store and sample a few tracks. And then maybe stop by my other blog for a few well chosen words (and maybe a random snark or two).RSS feed

Madrigal History Tour / The King's Singers
I first heard The King's Singers on some show on National Public Radio; they were talking about and performing the music of the Comedian Harmonists, a German vocal group that was hugely popular during the 20s and 30s, before their Jewish members ran afoul of a steadily more repressive national government. It's not often you discover two interesting musical groups at one time. And once I'd purchased and enjoyed the The Singers' take on The Harmonists, I went on to discover their a cappella performances of Gilbert & Sullivan and some more contemporary artists.

It was this album's title that caught my attention, even before I recognized the singers. (Or should that be The Singers?) I'll admit to a weakness for puns, and Madrigal History Tour has the virtue of being both accurately descriptive and amusing. As for the music, it makes me long for autumn and the opening of the Renaissance Faire. And we haven't even gotten to summer yet!
