Subject:        Songs from Tempest

Billy Houck asks about a good source for music from The Tempest.  The
handiest volume I know is MUSIC IN THE PLAYS OF SHAKESPEARE: A PRACTICUM
by Andrew Charlton (NY: Garland, 1991).  It lists the musical interludes
for each play and gives settings of the songs, most based on early
music.  I use this a lot for reference calls.

Comment:        Re: SHK 9.0436 Q: Tempest Music

Although not an expert on the subject, I have a CD of music entitled
"Shakespeare's Musik" by Philip Pickett and the Musicians of the Globe.
Among others, it includes "Full Fathom Five" and "Where the Bee Sucks"
The liner notes claim authenticity.
