The Early Music Show

Michael Praetorius's Musical Encyclopaedia

Sunday 29 August 2004 13:00-14:00 (Radio 3)

In the early 17th century the German composer, organist and music theorist Michael Praetorius compiled an encyclopaedia cataloguing every aspect of music in his time.

Andrew Manze dips into the book to create a picture of late renaissance music-making illustrated with works by Praetorius and his contemporaries.
