As more classical music appears on video, especially on DVD, medieval music appears too. Whereas not many medieval music videos have appeared to date, it is possible that this output could grow substantially in the future.
At present, then, this list will consist of all significant medieval music videos of which we are aware. We define a "medieval music video" as a video made for the purpose of highlighting medieval music, and consisting primarily of medieval music. In other words, feature films in which some medieval music appears as background will not appear. We define a "significant" release as one on a known label with national or international distribution. Private source videos are not included.
As can be readily observed, our overarching criteria of succinctness for these "perspectives" listings is not compromised even slightly by comprehensiveness here.
Perhaps this list can serve as a springboard for a lengthier listing.
