Pepys the Musician

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.

Producer: Anna Scott-Brown
An Overtone production for BBC Radio 4.
In collaboration with stage director Dionysios Kyropoulos currently studying for a PhD in music at Oxford University.

You can listen to the programme on BBC Radio 4 iPlayer.

Below is a recording of the piece ‘Du Bruit et des Facheux’.
