A Tudor Musician

Kings, Queens, Lords and Ladies would once have listened to music being played in the Great Hall at Old Woking Palace, maybe relaxing after a fine meal with oysters and roast boar.
More recently Palace visitors were entertained by musician and heritage professional Jez Smith who played a variety of reproduction Tudor instruments.  Perhaps Queen Elizabeth I heard similar music as she sipped her favourite mead!
Jez's music was really enjoyable and evoked the past in a fascinating way.
