The Harpsichord "in the English manner" - an illustrated exploration of English keyboard music 1600 - 1685.

Historical Keyboard specialist Steven Devine discusses and plays 17th Century harpsichord music, showing how the particular musical language of England in the time of Charles I became influenced by Charles II's time in exile in the European continent, culminating in a uniquely "English Style". Music by Lawes, Locke, Blow and Purcell among others, all played live.
