The News Agents - 25th April 2020 (Amanda Babington; Early Music History)

Experiments in news and arts with Jude Cowan Montague. This week: The musette. Amanda Babington introduces court bagpipes of the 17th & 18th century France. Wear your silken shepherd robes and have your sheep beside you for this historical journey. A rare programme on a unique instrument - there are not many musette players in the world today - the French Revolution led to this unusual performance art falling sharply out of favour, but it is an example of fun cultural mash-ups from the past. Amanda Babington is Artistic Director of Baroque In the North and an acclaimed musicologist. For more information see thenewsagents.blogspot.co.uk.
