Through four neglected music manuscripts written for the celebrated diarist Samuel Pepys by his catholic music master, this programme, presented by Lucy Skeaping, reveals religious terrorism and intrigue that has a surprisingly contemporary feel, and a revolution in British music that mirrors political changes that shape our modern psyche.
