Tales before the Stave

Tales before the Stave, was a fascinating programme on Radio 4 on the Winchester Troper, a pre-Conquest chant book, which probably contains music for the coronation of Edward the Confessor.

Just wonderful, Father. Thank you for drawing this to our attention.

I like the final word from Wulfstan

'It is the power of musical art that may make those rejoicing to rejoice more and those grieving to grieve more'
