3.00 British Cities: Norwich
As a cathedral city since Norman times, a flourishing provincial centre in the 18th and 19th centuries and, for the last 30 years, the home of the University of East Anglia, Norwich has a long cultural history in which music has played a central role. Religious traditions are represented by church music from the Reformation to the present, and the Norfolk and Norwich music festivals, growing from 18th-century roots, have made commissions reflecting developments in orchestral and choral music across the decades. Peter Aston and Christopher Smith introduce a musical portrait of the city.
