Harry Christophers on Melgás

In January 2013 Oxford University Press published a beautiful setting of Salve Regina by Portuguese composer Diogo Dias Melgás (1638-1700). This edition, part of the Musica Dei donum series, is the first published version of the work and includes detailed performance and editorial notes by early music specialist Sally Dunkley. In this video, Harry Christophers talks to Oxford University Press about how he discovered this piece as well as giving an insight in to relationships between sixteenth century composers and how these influenced their music while Sospiri perform Melgás, Monte, and Byrd.
