Renaissance Dance Music from Italy

From a Renaissance Entertainment given at a public concert in the Queen Elizabeth Hall , London, in 1969 by MUSICA RESERVATA director MICHAEL MORROW conductor JOHN BECKETT
Michael Morrow writes: 'With few exceptions this music forms part of a repertory that was largely international. The instrumental dances, as well as most of the vocal pieces, are arrangements of popular songs rather than original compositions.'
The instruments, which include lutes, rebecs and various wind, all belong to the period.






About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website, and programmes to purchase.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
