Renaissance is a six-part documentary series by Andrew Graham-Dixon on Renaissance art. I came across an upload of episode 4 on YouTube, and there is a classical piece that starts playing in the background at 21:18.
Can anyone identify it?
This piece is an ode by Henry Purcell titled "Here the deities approve".
You can listen to a performance of this ode by Alfred Deller, along with Gustav Leonhardt and the Leonhardt Baroque Ensemble.
