Yes, that is Spock in the headphones. The year was 1979. These are some of my LPs, themed compilations, and the like.

Renaissance Festival Music

Here's another fascinating collection of Renaissance or medieval-type music.  This is from Decca, around 1963. 

Flemish Dances and Venetian Music, these are the tracks:

Tielman Susato: Suite of Dances 1. I. Basse danse "La mourisque"
II. Branle and "Fagot"
2. III. Two Rondes
IV. Basse danse and Reprise
V. Allemaingne and Recoupe
3. VI. Pavane "Mille regretz"
VII. Pavane "La bataille"

4. Lodovico Viadana: Canzon "La Padovana" (a 8)
5. Andrea Gabrieli: Ricercar del Duodecimo Tuono (a 4)
6. Giovanni Battista Grillo: Canzon (a 4)
7. Giovanni Gabrieli: Canzon terza (a 4)
8. Florentio Maschera: Canzon "La Fontana" (a 4)
9. Giovanni Gabrieli: Canzon quarta (a 4)
10. Canzon Septimi Toni (a 8)

And here is the music.

Once again, what makes this music intriguing is that it sounds familiar enough to western music in form, yet is different enough to have an exotic tinge or tickle to the ear and mind.  Hope you like it!

Talk to you later!
