I am not sure that its medieval or renaissance music but I like Ravel and Bolero is my favorite piece of music

Giovanni Palestrina, Claudio Monteverdi, Tomas Victoria, William Byrd, Thomas Tallis, John Dowland, etc.

That’s all I can really think of. I don’t have a ton of pre-1600 music. I also love English Country Dance like “Gathering Peascods” and “Rufty Tufty”.

More like modern…lol. Ravel is very modern. And very awesome.

@doll_face indeed.. I also adore Bolero.. Ravel is amongst my favourite contemporaries.
@DominicX some of my other favourite (Madrigails / renaissance ) ..well..You named them… ; )

I’m glad you two enjoy such good music ..
Let’s hope there’ll be more to read from others as well.
