    3. Man of Mystery

    3. Man of Mystery

    It’s time to talk about Jean Maillard, Renaissance Man of Mystery.

    Little beyond Maillard’s sublime music exists. Was he banished from France? Was he killed in a massacre?

    In this episode, Rory delves deep into the theories, and is also joined by Professor John Bryan of Huddersfield University, who gives a fascinating account of how music travelled across Europe back then: shipwrecks, travelling servants, and all.

    Rory also talks to Charlotte Ashley (soprano) about the emotional toll of performing such powerful works of art.
