We’ll hear from Oberlin Baroque and a renaissance wind band from Indiana University, plus, a recording of world premieres from gambist Julianne Laake!

The Netherlands-based viol consort play music of Christopher Tye and John Jenkins.

Music by a composer whose music you may have heard, but whose name you might not know.
We're exploring paeans to solitude, songs of unrequited love—even a sumptuous soundscape sprung from a single note.
