Guillaume Dufay (c1400 - 1474) and Gilles Binchois (c1400 - 1460)

4. The Greatest Ornament of our Age

Thursday 29 July 2004 12:00-13:00 (Radio 3)

Repeated: Thursday 5 August 2004 0:00-1:00 (Radio 3)

Donald Macleod uncovers how Guillaume Dufay and Gilles Binchois were venerated in their own time, and how their intertwined careers again brought them together for one of the most lavish, and arguably preposterous, festive occasions of the era: the so-called 'Feast of the Pheasant.'

Duration:

1 hour
