Janet Forbes about the selected music:

We chose music from places he visited, pieces which would have been familiar to him.

 

Professor Lin Foxhall, Head of the School of Archaeology and Ancient History commented:

This concert offers another perspective on the life and times of Richard III, presenting the sound world in which he lived, and the different kinds of musci he would have heard and known.

 

In this regard, Dr. Philip Shaw continues this ‘sound reconstruction’ of King Richard III’s time by giving us a glimpse of how the king might have sounded and in what dialect he might have spoken: Dialect & Handwriting
