The wedding of Princess Margaret of York, sister of King Edward IV, to Charles, Duke of Burgundy was certainly one of the most lavish and musically rich of the century. This programme presents some of the music that would have been part of the celebrations, including works by Dufay and Busnois as well as the English composers Frye and Dunstable.

An immersive evening of chant and polyphony – some improvised, and the BREMF debut of Dutch ensemble Cappella Pratensis, singing from original notation around a choirbook stand.
