David Munrow was a pioneering performer of renaissance and medieval music. He amassed an impressive discography in all too brief career, formed the Early Music Consort of London and gained a popular audience through his music for the hit BBC TV series The Six Wives of Henry VIII and Elizabeth R. In 1976, after the death of his father, he hanged himself at the age of 33. A year later, Voyager carried his recording of "The Fairie Round" to the outer planets and beyond.
