Rhapsody offers online Ren Faire themed audio stream

Rhapsody, a subscription-based music webcast service, has added a Ren Faire channel that features music from the Middle Ages and Renaissance in a continuous Internet audio stream.

Subscribers to Rhapsody choose from multiple themed music channels, to which they can listen in their web browser on Macintosh, Linux, or Windows computers. (There is an additional-cost option that allows the music to be downloaded to an MP3 player, but that option works only on Windows.)

Henry Bono, an official at Rhapsody.com, announced the new Ren Faire channel in a recent letter to SCA members.

I've created a free "Renaissance Faire" radio station and wanted to let you know about it, since you're actively involved with the world of creative anachronism and might have an interest in medieval and Renaissance music. [See related link below.]

Also, if you know of any music that I'm missing and that you think should be on this station then please let me know and I'll do what I can to get it into the rotation. I'm sure I've missed lots of good music, and might have included too much chant.

If you enjoy the station and have a mailing list of like-minded folks, then please consider sharing this station with them.

Best Regards,
Henry
