    Good stuff, thanks! I have a track-tag version of early music that has some more streamable ensembles in it.

    What about Huelgas Ensemble?

    Great work,ill have to have a listen. Sure theres loads of bands ill like here, good to see a mix of the traditional stuff with the new bands that are using influences from medieva/renaissance times to come up with an update of the sound. you should add Sarband, some of their work is amazing, particulary their version of Llibre Vermell de Montserrat

    I think you should clearly delimit the early music composers and authentic early music performers from those bands playing neomedieval, or neofolk, or whatever they like to call it

    [i]clearly delimit[/i] That's best done with track-tagging though, anyway. That way one can separate out early/modern compositions by the same artist (example, The Hilliard Ensemble).

    Hi folks, thanks for the comments. I'll work my way through the suggested additions. I agree that neo-medieval music is a whole different kind of sound and I'll do my best to avoid tagging such music as early music. I appreciate the advantage of track tagging and I'll try my best to use it wherever possible from now on. However, I'm fairly ignorant and so I will be making mistakes.

    I've removed some neo-medieval music from this tag as was suggested. However, regarding track tagging, I think it would be more work than I'm willing to do.

    amazing collection, i'll tune in

    some from my list: Fredrik Klingwall, Trevor Jones and maybe something worth listening: Faun (mostly in german though)

    Hello Blecsan, Thank you for these suggestions. Neither Fredrik Klingwall's streamable tracks nor Trevor Jones's look like early music. Faun is pretty close, although their focus is on the instruments of early music, rather than early music itself.

    How about The Renaissance Revelers?

    Sure, OK. I've tagged them & I'll refresh this list at some point. Thanks.
