I was just trawling through the net trying to find some coverage about a festival we did a few seasons ago when I came across this clanger on the Radio 3 website:

Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment : Listening in Paris , 5 th October to 24 th November 2005 at the QEH. Conductors include Jean Féry Rebel, Frans Brüggen and Vladimir Jurowski.

Unless my memory is playing up I don’t remember Maestro Rebel conducting us at the time – perhaps not surprising as he died in 1747…
