Medieval Music Tapes Archive

Audio tape reels archived from the library of the Society for Old Music in the care of Clifford and Audrey Davidson. The tapes contain concerts, recitals and presentations of medieval and renaissance music, recorded between 1970 - 1980. Instrumentation includes: choir, organ, string, wind, and percussion.

A few of the tapes were in poor condition, and were processed with audio filters. Most are presented as direct digital transfer, with minimal editing. (leveling, and cutting out applause)

Captured on Akai GX-255.
