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.

Produced by James Hardie
