We wear this description of England – made by a German in the run up to WW1 – almost as a badge of honour. But was he right? We will survey the evidence, “English” (sc.”British”) music and musical culture across the ages and try to discover whether the jibe is justified. Witnesses for the defence will include a fine selection of British Yeomanry from William Byrd and John Dowland to Ralph Vaughan Williams and Benjamin Britten.
