Murdered Anthems And Improper Psalms

Musicologist Sally Drage explores the largely forgotten legacy of church music. In 1700 the standard of music in English parish churches was awful, but in the 18th century there was a revolution in the training of singers and musicians, and an astonishing variety of church music was composed. She visits a Staffordshire church and discovers a continuing tradition of performing this music in Yorkshire pubs.
