Man of Mystery
Published: 1st July 2020
It’s time to talk about Jean Maillard, Renaissance Man of Mystery.
Little beyond Maillard’s sublime music exists. Was he banished from France? Was he killed in a massacre?
In this episode, Rory delves deep into the theories, and is also joined by Professor John Bryan of Huddersfield University, who gives a fascinating account of how music travelled across Europe back then: shipwrecks, travelling servants, and all.
