General Discussion / Re: Andre Previn (1929 - 2018)

Hi Sarah..

                  Andre Previn knew Munrow, and his Early Music Consort of London. He was much impressed. Indeed, Previn wrote a short introduction to the book by Munrow entitled Instruments of the Middle Ages and Renaissance.  Furthermore, he also appeared with Bernard Levine the noted journalist on the Memorial programme when he died in May 1976. Both Previn, and Levine appeared to my mind "shaken" somewhat by Munrow's suicide as he was such a popular figure in the music world in general. So, there you have the connection...

Did David Munrow ever work with the late Andre Previn?  For some reason, I think he did, but cannot remember why.

Munrow's Recorded Legacy / THE VOYAGER GOLDEN RECORD reissued

As many of you know, Munrow featured on a special 'golden' long-playing record (lp) sent up with both of NASA's Voyager spacecraft, launched in 1977.

The disc was a compilation of music and sounds chosen by scientist Carl Sagan, for any curious alien lifeforms out there who happened upon the contents of the spacecraft!

The track featuring Munrow was The Early Music Consort of London's performance of Anthony Holborne's 'The Fairie Round' - the one where he plays a bass sordune, with John Turner on the top descant recorder part.

A Kickstarter campaign has successfully produced a recreation of the golden record and is available at
