“The Early Music Shop is the world’s largest early music instrument specialist.

It has become the largest single source of mediaeval, renaissance and baroque musical instruments world-wide.

The 3000sq ft showroom really is is an Aladdin’s Cave of affordable early music instruments, many of which are designed in-house in our own early music workshops, and from makers from all quarters of the globe.

The range including recorders, viols, lutes, harps, crumhorns, harpsichords, spinets, shawms, hurdy-gurdies, rebecs, mediaeval fiddles, re-enactment percussion, sheet music, CDs and accessories really offers a one-stop-shop for early music enthusiast”.-

    It was fascinating. I can’t play any musical instrument, but that didn’t stop me from being wowed by them

    Thanks Liz. I was fascinated by the stuff in that shop. There was row after row of harps, lined up in a circle like they were all dancing round a maypole. Must find some more pics for another post.

I'm always pleased to read comments.....
