poetry for the ear in the tradition of blind Homer 

The music you are now hearing is "Sellingers Rownde " [Musica Britannica 84] by William Byrd, a contemporary of Shakespeare.  The work was sequenced by internationally renowned Canadian harpsichordist John Sankey, to whom I owe a debt of gratitude for his kind permission to use all of his many recordings on Eaglesweb.com.
