Although these days such attention to authenticity is common, even expected, Munrow was one of the pioneers in bringing musicological research and the more immediate practicalities of really old, original instruments and stylistic practice to the level of popular culture.
At least one of the pieces goes on way too long--the trying-to-be-realistically-crude Street Music--and Munrow's strikingly weird, avant-garde-like Henry's Loneliness, a truly creepy sequence written for the film that must be the most twisted use of psaltery, harp, and crwth ever devised, seems a bit extreme outside of the movie's context.
Munrow was an important figure in the period-performance movement (sadly, he committed suicide in 1976 at age 33), and these recordings show what a class act he and his Early Music Consort of London were.

The Musical Offering - Music of the Gothic Era
David Munrow blazed like a bottle-rocket across the Early Music scene of the 1970s.
His career lasted an all-too-brief 9 years (he died in 1976), but in that time he managed to take the stodgy, academic pursuit of historically informed performance, turn it on its head and shake all the stuffing out of it.
The recording stands as a template for our present view of Medieval music, but its influence goes even beyond that: Munrow gave the music a universal appeal that lifted it out of academia and permanently into our concert halls.

The Early Music Consort of London is one of the pioneers of the 70s' revival of Early Music, and consists of such illustrious names as Christopher Hogwood, James Bowman, Nigel North and of course the crusader himself David Munrow (1942-76), who is responsible for the 15 pages of detailed notes in the booklet.
The performances possess a certain degree of rigidity of rhythm, as is typical of many British groups, though the plus/fault of rhythmic freedom is a matter of the listener's personal taste.

Classical Net Review - Vivaldi/Mancini/Barbella/Gilles/Corrette - Archiv Reissues
David Munrow's collection of Music of the Gothic Era, recorded back in 1975, was hailed upon its release not only for its historical value, but also for the imagination that Munrow and his colleagues showed in realizing manuscripts that often are as open-ended as they are ancient.
Munrow was a scholar, but he was anything but a dusty person, and his death not much later at the age of thirty-four was a major disaster for the Early Music field.
Again, Munrow relied upon a diverse (but, in contrast to most early efforts to bring this music forward, not inflated) cast of singers and instrumentalists to demonstrate the music's continued viability.
