Music and Monarchy Part 2 Revolutions Print E-mail
Written by Professor David Flint AM   
Sunday, 19 January 2014

David Starkey's Music And Monarchy Episode 2 - Revolutions - was broadcast on SBS ONE 17 January 2014 at 8.30pm AEDT. ( The last episodes will be broadcast at this time on the next two Fridays.)

 

 

It  can still be seen by clicking here, but do note that this window expires on  31 January 2014, 9:40pm  AEDT. You should not miss it; visually and musically it is a feast.

In ''Revolutions',  Dr David Starkey shows how the monarchy shaped Britain's music reaches the 17th century, when religious conflict threatened not only the lives of musicians and monarchs, but the future of the monarchy and the glorious tradition of British music itself.

And yet, in the midst of this upheaval, royalty presided over a series of musical breakthroughs. Westminster Abbey choir sing some of the earliest surviving music to be heard at British coronations, the Band of the Life Guards play pieces which Charles I used in battle, and the Academy of Ancient Music perform some of the glorious works of arguably the greatest English composer - Henry Purcell.
