Greenlit: The Music That Made Britain – Patriotism, Pleasure And Perfection, BBC4

The Music That Made Britain – Patriotism, Pleasure And Perfection w/t (3 x 60′) – Suzy Klein, broadcaster and BBC Radio 3 presenter, charts English music’s increased credibility with the fashionable upper classes in the 1700s along with the rise of the fashionable ‘English Oratorio’. It examines the emergence of mass popularity of music in the century and sheds light on the impact of war and rebellion on national identity which was marked by the creation of the anthems Rule Britannia and God Save The King.
