AllMusic Review by

Englishe Musicke is a 16-track collection which draws from the band's three prime-period albums -- Evensong (1970), Fantasia Lindum (1971), and England (1972). Although most progressive rock doesn't translate well on collections due to its more album-oriented concept nature, Englishe Musicke shows Amazing Blondel's music in a fair light. The songs work well as self-contained pieces, and the real concept -- the medieval sound -- is kept consistent throughout, making this a nice career overview and a pretty good introduction, though the converted will undoubtedly need the albums in their entirety.
