Stewart, Donna The Tudors History,
Literature- Authors,
Music
Join us as we travel through time and trace an ever-evolving musical style during the 118-year reign of England's Tudor monarchs. All the Tudors were trained in music from childhood and were accomplished lutenists, singers, and even composers. Using the framework of the Tudor dynasty - 1485 through 1603 - we present a broad range of musical styles reflecting the varied musical influences left by this musically gifted clan, all of whom employed legions of important musicians, French, Flemish, Spanish and Italian. Our samplings from the bounteous Tudor musical legacy begin with mesmerizing rondeaux from the time of Henry VII, romp through the familiar lusty fare of Henry VIII's tempestuous court, sample serene sacred music to please the devout so-called Bloody Mary, and indulge in the lush and familiar songs from Elizabeth's Golden Age.
