    Variation on a Theme

    Variation was a popular compositional method during the 17th and 18th centuries, to be found in variations on popular tunes, but also in forms such as the ground bass, which spun elaborate variations over a repeating bassline. The Minster Minstrels explores the use of variation in a programme which will include the joyful Carman’s Whistle, the more reflective Ah, Robyn, and the use of ground bass in the music of Henry Purcell and John Blow.
