Greenlit: Eighteenth Century Music, BBC4

Eighteenth Century Music – Presented by Suzy Klein, broadcaster and Radio 3 In Tune presenter, this series will chart the social, cultural and political context of Britain and how this was reflected in the powerful music of this era. The series will begin by exploring English music’s increased credibility with the fashionable upper classes in the 1700s along with the rise of the fashionable ‘English Oratorio’. It will go on to examine the emergence of mass popularity of music in the mid-1700s and will shed light on the impact of war and revolution on national identity which marked the creation of the anthems, God Save The King and Rule Britannia.
