London’s Globe Theatre is launching its own record label, Globe Editions, this fall as a way to reach new audiences. The first album, Elizabethan Street Songs, is performed by early music expert and Globe musician Jim Bisgood and his band Tarleton’s Jig, using traditional instruments such as the sackbut, archlute and hurdygurdy. Important caveat: The recording will not feature music from stage productions; they’ll be original works. But the next album is entitled Shakespeare’s Lovers, and it will feature the poet’s sonnets set to specially commissioned music by the company’s composers.
