Early Music

Early Music is a term applied to musical compositions from the medieval times (~1300s through ~1600s, basically pre-Baroque era).  Like the other eras of music, there were many wonderful composers who wrote stunningly-beautiful compositions for the court, the church and other purposes.  Unfortunately (and unlike all the musical periods that came after) an extremely small portion of the repertoire has survived and an even smaller percentage is played...anywhere.

While at college I was introduced to Early Music by my theory instructor, Joseph Iadone (lutenist extraordinaire), and I had the good fortune of performing in an ensemble with Susan Iadone (recorder and string/viol player extraordinaire).  For introducing me to Early Music I owe these two brilliant musicians and good friends a debt that I will never be able to repay.  But I am slowly working it off, by recording a very small part of the amazing repertoire from this time period.

Click here to visit a section of this site where you can listen to any/all of the songs I've made available in .MP3 format, and download them to play or burn on CDs and distribute.  Feel free to let me know what you think of them, or if you're interested in obtaining the music, by writing at:
