March 28th, 2008 - Sacred music programme on BBC Four


BBC TV is running an excellent new series called 'Sacred Music' on BBC Four. It's not often that we see whole TV programmes devoted to such topics, so this is definately worth a watch!

The programme airs on Friday nights, 8pm on BBC Four.

Last week's programme focussed on the 'Gothic revolution' - charting the story of the early development of Christian church music from the haunting simplicity of plain song to the full glory of gothic polyphony.

Tonight's programme is intruigingly entitled 'Palestrina and the Popes' - sounds very relevant to Catholic music!

If you miss the programme, catch it agin on BBC IPlayer .
