This chapter continues analysis of the commercialization of Early Music through reference to three further sets of institutions and their respective discourses of value: the BBC (art), music clubs and festivals (folk), and record companies (commercial). TheBBCis shown to play a crucial role in incubating Early Musicin the early years of its development. William Glock’stop-down support for HIP (between 1960-73), coupled withtheties forged between Oxford-educated’scholar-performers’and the BBC’s music department,together constituted a distinctively enabling mix.Turning to Early Music’s links with the British folk revival we find music clubs and early music festivals providing an essential space for sharing HIP more widely. Though the record companies are often portrayed as only ‘jumping on the old band wagon’ once profitability was proved, the chapter outlinesa rather more complexpicture, highlightinganenlightened approach towards risk-taking by some of the industry’s key players.
