Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor

Sunday 27 April 2008 0:00-1:00 (Radio 3)

Catherine Bott traces the life of Charles V through the music which he would have heard and with which he surrounded himself. At one point the most powerful man in Europe, he was also a notable patron of the arts, employing such musical luminaries as Pierre de la Rue, Thomas Crecquillon and Nicholas Gombert.

This is a repeat of the programme broadcast last Saturday.  View details.
