Fairest Isle

The restoration of Charles II to the throne in 1660 allowed music-making to flourish once again in England. But the King’s long exile on the continent had given him a pronounced taste for all things French and Italian. The Minster Minstrels – the NCEM’s ever-developing youth instrumental ensemble – perform music from late 17th-century theatre, court and household in a programme demonstrating the influence of the new Italian and French styles in post-Restoration England.

Please note there is a £1.50 administration fee per transaction
