York Early Music Festival 2011

Catherine Bott presents a live edition from the National Centre of Early Music, at the start of this year's York Early Music Festival. The theme of the Festival celebrates the spirit of the 1951 Festival of Britain - 60 years on -and features concerts that reflect the then emerging 'early music' movement; music in this programme includes a selection from the English madrigal collection, the Triumphs of Oriana, performed live by the King's Singers. Catherine also chats to various performers involved in this year's Festival, and to the Festival Director, Delma Tomlin, about the Festival's theme and concerts.
