In which we float gravity free, break some musical eggs and prepare to leave the Middle Ages: Before Bach – After Bach – the Copernican revolution – printing presses and the distribution of music – Chapel Royal – Byrd is born – reformed music – Galileo’s dad – essential dissonance – new instruments – music heightens mood and plot.
