York Early Music Festival

Lucie Skeaping presents highlights of a concert given earlier this year at the York Early Music Festival, by the Choir of New College Oxford and The Saraband Consort, under their director, Edward Higginbottom. It was recorded in St Michael le Belfry, a church just by the Minster in York. The concert reflects the Festival's theme of Exile, Music in a strange Land, and includes works by Purcell, Matthew Locke and Francois Couperin. The programme also includes a feature which looks at a group of Italian musicians led by Innocenzo Fede, who worked at James II's court at Whitehall.
