Earworm of the day

I've always enjoyed the guitar work of Ritchie Blackmore, from his heavy rock days with Deep Purple in the late 1960's and 1970's, through Rainbow in the 1980's, to his medieval and Renaissance music with Blackmore's Night since the 1990's. He's a master of his instrument.

Here's Ritchie playing solo in Renaissance style from Blackmore's Night's album 'Secret Voyage'. This track's called 'Prince Waldeck's Galliard'. (A galliard is a form of Renaissance dance music.) It's a short piece, but entrancing.

Lovely stuff!

I had almost forgotten about that album, which added to my interest in Ren music, back in the day. Excellently done.
