Ep. 51 - Queen Elisabeth 1

God save our gracious Queen, Long live our noble Queen 

God save the Queen. 

Send her victorious, Happy and glorious, Long to reign over us 

God save the Queen. 

 

Welcome everyone to a new episode and season of Notes and Strokes! We are excited to kick off season 4 with an amazing figure of history - Queen Elisabeth 1 of England. 

Although she has the same name as the current Queen of England, the gap between Elisabeths lasted over 300 years; but fret not, her reputation has stood the test of time. Her regal abilities included everything from commanding an elite military to styling a fierce sense of fashion - what couldn't she do! 

But of course, her presence on this podcast means that her crown influenced beautiful works of both art and music. So join us for this first episode of season 4 of N&S!
