Format: Audio CD
When Renbourn put this album out around 1970, it was quite an unusual release. He and his friend Bert Jansch were at that point heading the band Pentangle, and between their solo efforts and the band's had been exploring a synthesis of folk, blues, classical and jazz styles. This album brought to the mix yet another element: Medieval and Renaissance music. Renbourn's solo and small ensemble arrangements of the material are mostly gentle and respectful, yet incorporate a jazz flair that give them a truly contemporary sound. This was really good dinner and/or 'date' music for the period: quiet and intimate, and with plenty of personality. It's not very long, however--couldn't someone put it together with "Sir John Alot..." as a twofer?

I have worn out several vinyl records of this album over the years since 1970. Out of all the music I have ever heard, this music seems to open up my inner being in some strange way. I have found this music to be relaxing and enjoyable beyond any other music I know. For reasons unclear to me, it seems to slip me into a state of deep contemplation and wonderful creativity. It allows me to find parts of myself I barely know exist. It has consistantly encouraged me to write, emote, and just enjoy life. I have never grown weary of it and am glad to see it in CD format. The wonderful melodies and harmonies of the songs on this album seem to speak to one another in the deepest emotional terms. Thanks John.

This is a very nice cd, but I have to admit, I don't reach for it as much as "Sir Johnalot". This is really a rennaisance sound, completely acoustic, and very relaxing. Renbourn is a virtuoso guitarist.

This is the recording I always return to. I am now buying my third copy. It made me want to play guitar and has inspired a generation of guitarists. If you've ever wondered just how great medieval music can sound, listen to this recording. The versions of Scarborough Fair and My Johnny Was a Shoemaker combine elements of Jazz, Folk, and Pop in a way that was original when they were first recorded and which haven't been matched since. If you want to get to know Early Music, start here. It doesn't get much better.
