THE VOYAGER GOLDEN RECORD reissued
« on: February 16, 2018, 06:49:49 AM »
As many of you know, Munrow featured on a special 'golden' long-playing record (lp) sent up with both of NASA's Voyager spacecraft, launched in 1977.

The disc was a compilation of music and sounds chosen by scientist Carl Sagan, for any curious alien lifeforms out there who happened upon the contents of the spacecraft!

The track featuring Munrow was The Early Music Consort of London's performance of Anthony Holborne's 'The Fairie Round' - the one where he plays a bass sordune, with John Turner on the top descant recorder part.

A Kickstarter campaign has successfully produced a recreation of the golden record and is available at http://www.ozmarecords.com/voyager
