The years of the English Civil War and the ensuing Commonwealth and Protectorate (1642-1660) are often regarded as a barren time for music in England, yet this turbulent period was fertile ground for some eccentric and innovative composers. Contrary to popular belief, Oliver Cromwell, ‘God’s Englishman’, was fond of music and kept a remarkably lively musical establishment. The internationally renowned viol consort, Fretwork, illustrates these distracted times with music from before, during and after the conflict, including works by Tomkins, Locke and one of Purcell's tutors, Hingston.

Post-concert Q&A
with musicians from Fretwork and Angus Smith.
