The reign of Charles I is often characterised as one of political chaos and decline, with wars against Spain leading to the disastrous Civil War that culminated in the King’s execution. But Charles’s cultural achievements were many, not least in his establishment of an active and progressive musical culture at court. Join us for the first of the 2018 Festival Lectures in the company of Jonathan Wainwright, Professor of Music at the University of York, who has written extensively about English and Italian music in the 16th and 17th centuries.
