About this course:

There is a long storied history of music in England. From the earliest harmonic influences English folksong had on the European continent, to the music of John Dunstable, William Byrd, Thomas Tallis, and Henry Purcell, a growing tradition has flourished in the British Isles. However, for much of the period after Purcell, the most important composers of note were not from England at all. From Handel to Haydn, some of the most famous music heard by residents of Britain were by composers who did not live in England. After a long drought, a new wave of composers began to flourish at the turn of the 20th century. In this course, we explore some of the music of this period by Gustav Holst, Vaughan Williams, Edward Elgar, Benjamin Britten, and many others.  This course will be recorded.  Students will have access to videos for the duration of the course.
