The musical journey starts at the beginning of the 16th century with the Belgian composer Tylman Susato and the English king, Henry VIII. It continues with Johann Sebastian Bach (17th century), Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (18th century) and Jacques Offenbach (19th century), visiting many other well-known composers along the way. The journey finishes in the 20th century with the French composer Gabriel Fauré. Piano accompaniment separate (see below).
