I've come across a few of these gentleman (and lady) in my studies, nice list. Really appreciate how projects like the Tallis scholars bring this medieval/renaissance stuff back to life.

Awesome list. Metalheads seriously need more early music in their lives.

And thanks for including Hildegard!!!! She's quite possibly the coolest chick music has ever seen.
