Summary In this new series, renowned historian Dr David Starkey reveals how the story of British music was shaped by its monarchy. While exploring what the monarchy has done for music, David Starkey also shows what music has done for the monarchy. In this first episode he begins with kings who were also composers - Henry V and Henry VIII - and the "golden age" of English music they presided over. He discovers how the military and religious ambitions of England's monarchy made its music the envy of Europe - and then brought it to the brink of destruction; and why British music still owes a huge debt to Queen Elizabeth I.
