Made in Britain: The Mackworth Collection
Saturday 11 November 2006 13:00-14:00 (Radio 3)
Catherine Bott visits the Music Department at Cardiff University, home to the Mackworth Collection. This collection of manuscripts was built up over several generations of the Mackworth family, whose family seat was at Gnoll Castle, Neath, in Wales. She meets Dr Sarah McCleave, who has catalogued the collection, and they talk about the different generations of the family who added to the collection, and the social side of music-making within the family in the 18th and 19th centuries. Including music by Sandoni, Hasse, Bononcini and Handel.
