This might appeal to a few of you:

There's a few more bits & bobs up there all compiled from the DVD of his 1976 TV series Early Music Instruments (filmed on location in Ordsall Hall, Salford) which you can buy from

For that extra special Early Music treat:

Le Royaume Oublié: La Tragédie Cathare - Part One

Boy, that ate up the rest of the afternoon very enjoyably.
I will have to buy the DVD of the whole series now, I never got to see him live but have a few of his "records".
Talk about performance effort, he left no prisoners for sure.
My wife is from Salford and remembers going around Ordsall Hall in the 60's on a School trip.
Thanks for the info S O'P, JohnB

David Munrow was a lovely guy. I met him on a few occasions when I was working for the Beeb in the late 60's/early 70s, and he was a superb musician and musicologist. His early death was very sad. I still have an album of the incidental music he wrote for a radio production of The Hobbit (Paul Daneman as Bilbo), plus some arrangements of music played by the Tudow waits bands. Great stuff.

Davids programmes on The Third in the early seventies were an absolute delight.I was only thinking about these progs this morning. He was an amazing musician and was truly inspirational, I cant wait to watch this tonight

I saw him at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall. He was a very important in the early music movement in the UK - and beyond.

Looks really funny at 6:41
Reminds me of my sister's hampster!
Would that be Christopher Hogwood playing keyboard?

I saw David Munrow play recorder in a J S Bach Brandenburg Concerto at a promenade concert in the Albert Hall.
Maybe around 1972? He was great.

Anyone know the story of his death?
Nothing much on Wikipedia.

I've got the Royaume Oublie CD set, didn't know there was video. Thanks.

I believe Munrow hanged himself, arranging it so his family found him when they came down for breakfast. No idea why.

Grim stuff, Jack - but oddly fascinating at the same time, given that it couldn't have been so very long after the Salford footage and he doesn't look or play like a man with suicide on his mind. Ubiquitous in his day, and still crucial. I pick up the old vinyl whenever I see it. I think my favourite is the Gothic Era box with the Notre Dame Organum & Ars Nova stuff which still sets the bench mark to this day really.

Love the Royaume Oublie CD set (I've got a whole Ikea CD shelf devoted to my Alia Vox collection - my one of few indulgences) so the film is a blessing (even if does miss out Veris Dulcis which is a long standing favourite of mine) but of course the real treat is seeing Rene Zosso looking so sprightly. I did a piece about RZ for the Yorkshire folk magazing Stirrings - I'll feature it as a blog in a wee while...
