Info

The Castle of Bray is locatet in the North of France and was the residence of the English King’s governor. Those governors were called “vicar”, they were clerics, dukes, counts or aristocrats. They reigned like autonomous princes with a huge reach of power. When the King travelled through this region, he was always guest at the Castle of Bray. Therefore the castle was richly adorned. The four movements of this piece mirror court life at that time.
The majestic opening movement “Health Unto His Majesty” describes the ceremonious welcome of the English Royal couple.
“Entrance of the French Guests”, the second movement, musically contrasts to the first movement.
The third movement “Court Dance” shows the courtly etiquette par excellence.
Highlight of this piece is “The Vicar of Bray”, whose power and pomp are musically expressed in the final movement.
