It’s time to get back inside the MusicalTalk Time Machine to look at the music compiled by Thomas D’urfey in his seminal collection of 17th and 18th Century songs.  Thos looks at the connections between D’urfey, John Gay, The Beggar’s Opera, and a well-known nursery rhyme. There’s also a chance to hear a further chat with the multitalented academic and performer, David William Hughes, who talks about another of his one man musicals - this time named after D’Urfey’s famous book, Wit and Mirth.
