    MINSTER MINSTRELS directed by Ailsa Batters

    THE FRENCH CONNECTION

    The restoration of Charles II to the throne in 1660 allowed music-making to flourish once again in London. But Charles had developed a love of things French while in exile and encouraged the French style in the music heard in his court and chapel. The Minster Minstrels – the NCEM’s ever-developing Youth Instrumental Ensemble - explores how this influence left its mark on music in England for decades to come.

    The Minster Minstrels is run as a partnership between the NCEM and York Music Centre with support from the Mayfield Valley Arts Trust. For details of the weekly programme, and information on how to join this lively group, please visit the website www.ncem.co.uk/minsterminstrels
