David Starkey’s Music & Monarchy

An exploration of musical monarchs

David Starkey

'The sumptuous, well crafted BBC series marking the 60th anniversary of the Coronation finds historian and presenter David Starkey on a familiar televisual trek round an array of significant sites… Not the least of Starkey's achievements is to bring each monarch vividly to life, although composers as their servants are as central.' Andrew Green
