    Over the past four years I have enjoyed, perhaps enraptured might better describe the experience, the sublime recitals of the music of the late middle ages and the renaissance as provided by the Festival. The East Cork Early Music festival has become the mainstay of my cultural year and indeed the most anticipated.
