David Skinner links

I recently had the privilege of journeying to Sidney Sussex College in Cambridge to meet David Skinner, and he generously gave me an hour of his time to have a conversation about the changes in music in the 16th century.  We covered a huge amount of information, and he mentioned a lot of links, youtube videos, recordings, etc, and I’ve tried to add them all below.  If you’re thinking about a great Christmas gift, please consider an Alamire CD.  I’d love it if we as a community could rock the sales of Anne Boleyn’s Songbook!
