They take us from music based on John Playford’s The English Dancing Master in 1651 to traditional music of Kent, Cotswold, and the Isle of Man. Scottish composer, Peter Graham celebrates the invention of the marine chronometer by John Harrison to measure Longitude and enable safe navigation for the Royal Navy in his masterwork, Harrison’s Dream.
