Sunday music spot: Purcell's Rondeau



I first heard this wonderful piece as a boy when it was used as the theme tune of a BBC costume drama called "The First Churchills" about the first Duke and Duchess of Marlborough.

It was, of course, also used in Britten's "Young person's guide to the Orchestra" and in the election campaign theme which Andrew Lloyd Weber wrote for John Major.
