Wolf Hall and the Tudors

Blogger ref

Wolf Hall, and the Tudors (two tv series)  seem to derive something of their inspiration directly, and indirectly from the Early Music of the 16th Century...Some of it might be regarded as being  highly "experimental" in nature using modern instrumentation, celtic sounds, et cetera... (main theme)

The following example is from the Tudors.

Elizabeth Elizabeth I and Virgin Queen...

Blogger ref

Elizabeth was a film back in 1998. The music to some extent draws its inspiration from the Early Music of the time. The same could be said of the other musical examples included here from two tv series.. again dealing with Queen Elizabeth I of England.

William Byrd - Domine secundum actum meum - from the film "Elizabeth" - Night of the Long Knives  

The next examples come from two TV series. The first of which is Elizabeth I played by Helen Mirren, and the other entitled Virgin Queen.
