Cult hero David Munrow took his life only 34 years old. Fortunately, we have the soundtrack to "Henry VIII and his Six Wives" to remind us of his greatness.
It is a historical fact that music has always played a significant role in many princeslife. Both of my grandmother's. It has probably lost count of how many composers who"saved" their lives by spending long periods in prosperous potentates protectivewings. And then I think particularly on the economic side of life. This is to make a living. At the same time could well such a commitment are seen as almost to sit in the "prison" for long periods. I think probably most of Haydn, who never established agestarved, very material, but who constantly had a tremendous time pressure hanging over his velpudrede wig. Prince Nikolaus demanded constantly newly composedmusic for its many events. And these events took place several times each weekthroughout the year. Almost.
But it's probably a notch higher I styles at the beginning of the week column. I think basically the "types" such as Frederick II of Prussia, "The Great", and Louis XIV of France, himself "Sun King", and their musically well-appointed court. The flute-playing Germans, with sizes that Quantz, Graun and Bach's most gifted son, Carl Philipp located in his private cultural ministry. While his equally wonderful loving French colleague's most prominent figure was the Italian-born Gianbattista Lulli, which we know today as Jean Baptiste Lully. A man who eventually got the dictatorial power, and grace of those who tried to sneak in the back door. A third monarch, who was also a great lover of the noble arts, it was Henry VIII. The one with the six wives. And it is one we focus on today. The British have always been at the forefront of creating large-scale television series based on the historically important persons. We remember with pleasure both episodes about Elizabeth I or Victoria and Albert. But Henry was "rewarded" by this honor. The success was to touch and feel. It also resulted in a feature length film. Portrait similarity between Henry and the holder of the title role in both productions: Keith Michell, was so striking that in a long time - for better or worse - was identified with the original. But masking art at a high level has always characterized these productions.
Music has also played a key role in these occasions, and when it comes to the aforementioned film was something new in that part of the overall picture. We write 1972, and the growing interest in so-called authentic performance practice was about to turn out in full bloom. Text Paperback of the week selected, which is the "soundtrack" from the film, said that it was the first time they took the step out completely and turned to the great guru of the time, David Munrow. A musical handyman, who was both a master on the recorder and had solid academic knowledge - both of language and world folk music. He shall in particular have been fascinated by the South American wind instruments. With this background, he started to find compositions from the 1500s, and arranged it all with an ear for detail that seems totally convincing. The beauty of these performances is that they have a rough vigor, but also a spontaneity that gives us a sense of a bunch of happy street musicians in free musical flight. Another fascinating element of it is that almost every small cuts have different instrumentation. From a single harpsichord or a simple lute, to full blast crew. Often followed by various types of percussion. It makes the whole picture is far more varied than usual. If something can be called normal, then. Henrik is also represented with a small stanza itself. "Pastyme with Good Company". A suitable piece titled, for it was something he liked, it was to spend much of their time in good company.
David Munrow achieved cult status in his time, and had probably been a more familiar name in these days if he had chosen to take his own life in 1976, 34 years old. He was a musician, arranger and composer of rank, and we get a proper evidence through this re-release on Testament. It gives us a comprehensive picture of music Henry VIII had available. Both the everyday and to party.
