Katherine shares some of the great pieces in her collection that have come out of Britain.
'Benjamin Britten was one of the great British composers of the 20th century,' says Katherine, 'and when he came to write the Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra in 1946 for an educational documentary film, he went all the way back to draw inspiration from the 17th century English genius, Henry Purcell.' The tune is a simple hornpipe from Abdelazer, a play for which Purcell composed incidental music in 1695.
