Dame Cleo talks movingly about the events of last weekend on BBC Radio 4’s The Last Word.
Meanwhile Professor Lisa Jardine has a tribute to Dankworth on the BBC News website. It argues for the virtues of making music education available. Jardine chooses to illustrate her point with memories of Proust, and with a story about Sir Constantijn Huygens haggling over the price of a chest of viols for his sons in 1638.
JD would have had a chuckle at that.
