Nonsuch Newsletter Audio Supplement, Winter 2021 No 7

Our aim is to give the Newsletter an added audio dimension. In this 7th edition of the audio supplement, we have contributions from Nonsuch members – and links to a number of articles within the newsletter.

We go back in time to several different eras – finding out about Music at the time of the Great Plague – and in 13th Century Spain – and then there’s the Glasgow Dulcimer Tradition in the 1930s – and music from Vaughan Williams.

The Nonsuch Newsletter goes out to our members once a quarter, you can join here!
