Pop songs translated into Shakespeare. Shakespeare had the best insults. so ahead of his time, definitely the highlight of my college Shakespeare class. I do desire we may be better strangers. It would be fun to give students a bunch of these and have them match them or translate them and then have them take a stab at turning a song they like into a sonnet.

Martin Best, founder of the medieval music ensemble that bears his name, has lived a life of latter-day minstrelsy. He first learned the craft of music as an apprentice: he studied classical guitar with two of the twentieth century's greatest masters, Andrés Segovia and John Williams. He spent his journeyman years, however, among the peasants of a rural Spanish village. This part of Best's musical career was devoted to a simple lifestyle and the music of the folk. In this vein, he began a recording career with a wide variety of vocal and instrumental albums ranging across centuries (English popular music from Shakespeare to the twentieth century) and across linguistic groups (English, Spanish, French, and Provençal). Yet in 1981, Best narrowed his specialty to the European troubadour traditions, what he had once called his "first love." At this time, he formed the Martin Best Medieval Ensemble.
In the 1980s, the Martin Best Medieval Ensemble (and the Martin Best Consort) took England's early music scene by storm. They released a popular series of recordings, each an acoustically fresh read on a group of poets and composers: Guiraut Riquier, Bernart de Ventadorn, Italian and southern French contemporaries of Dante, other Troubadors and Trouvéres, the Lamento di Tristan, and the Cantigas de Santa Maria. Simultaneously, the ensemble presented a series of medieval concert programs for the BBC, and debuts in Britain's most prestigious concert venues: Wigmore Hall, the Queen Elizabeth Hall, and the Proms. Their recordings principally appear on Nimbus records.
Martin Best, fondatore del complesso di musica medievale che porta il suo nome, ha vissuto una vita da menestrello. Ha studiato dapprima musica come autodidatta poi ha studiato chitarra classica con due dei più grandi maestri del ventesimo secolo, Andrés Segovia e John Williams. Ha trascorso i suoi anni giovanili, tuttavia, tra i contadini di un villaggio rurale spagnolo. Questa fase della carriera musicale di Best è caratterizzata da uno stile semplice molto legato alla musica del folk. In tale ottica, ha iniziato una carriera discografica con una grande varietà di album vocali e strumentali che spaziano attraverso i secoli (in inglese musica popolare da Shakespeare al Novecento) e tra i gruppi linguistici (inglese, spagnolo, francese e provenzale). Nel 1981, Best si è indirizzato alle tradizioni europee dei trovatori, quello che un tempo era chiamato il suo "primo amore". In questa fase, ha formato il Best Martin Ensemble medievale.
Nel 1980, il Best Martin Ensemble Medievale (e il miglior Martin Consort) hanno rilasciato una serie di registrazioni acustiche su un gruppo di poeti e compositori: Guiraut Riquier, Bernart de Ventadorn, italiani e francesi meridionali contemporanei di Dante, trovatori e altri Trouvéres, il Lamento di Tristano, e la Cantigas de Santa Maria. Contemporaneamente, l'ensemble ha presentato una serie di programmi di concerti medievali per la BBC, e ha debuttato in Gran Bretagna nelle sale da concerto più prestigiose: Wigmore Hall, la Queen Elizabeth Hall, ed i Proms. Le loro registrazioni appaiono principalmente su etichetta Nimbus.
