History of England Notes

Hello History of England Listeners! I’m so thrilled to be able to do a guest episode for David, and all of you. Thanks for listening, and for coming to my little area of the interwebs.

Here are some of my most popular episodes that you might enjoy as you get to know me better 🙂

In October I did several episodes on the English Reformation to celebrate Reformation Month. You can listen to them all here: https://www.englandcast.com/2017/10/october-reformation-month/

I do a monthly podcast with Tudor Times on their Person of the Month. The one on James I is one of the most popular:

And the one I did on Pregnancy and Childbirth in Renaissance England is one of the most listened to:

There are also several interviews you might enjoy:

Alison Weir talked about Anne Boleyn – I know David’s just finishing up his series on her:

Professor Glenn Richardson on the Field of Cloth of Gold is fascinating:

And finally, if you missed the Tudor Summit – the online Tudor smorgasbord of talks from leading Tudor historians, bloggers, and podcasters (Tony Riches, Sarah Gristwood, and lots more…) you can still get the videos here, and I’d invite you to check it out… it was such good fun, we’ll be doing it again in March with new speakers!

Now, let’s move on to Music …

This episode with musicologist David Skinner provides a great intro as well…

And Suzi Digby, OBE – whom I mentioned in the episode – talks about the music of the 16th century, and how it is still relevant today:
