About this album

Recorded 16–19 September 1973, this recording marks the foundation of the Academy of Ancient Music. It features many of the musicians who would go on to make the AAM's name over the following decades, including — perhaps most remarkably — the horn player Alan Civil, who appears on The Beatles' album Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
