Sarah Walker with English music across the ages
Sarah Walker looks at English music, high-brow and low-brow from across the ages.
Today Sarah Walker looks at English music, high-brow and low-brow from across the ages. She follows up the composer of the week who's just been featured on Radio 3 with more work by John Dowland, along with pieces by Thomas Tallis and Henry Purcell. But there's also a much more modern element, from 20th century composers who drew on the English folk and song tradition, including Lennox Berkeley, Benjamin Britten and Percy Grainger. This week's Sunday Escape is by Peteris Vasks.
