Three strands are braided together into this episode of Harmonia Uncut: copies of viols from Lombardy performing music from Lombardy that sets spiritual sonnets written by the first published female poet.
On today’s podcast, we’ll hear a trouvère song by Gace Brulé with voice and vielle by Aaron Cain and Joanna Blendulf. Then...ever heard of David Baudinger? You won’t forget the name after you hear this performance by viola da gamba player Joshua Keller.

“Why don’t you study something more practical?” This week on Harmonia, we’ll explore music by lawyers, philosophers, and even a king! Plus, music of Johann C. F. Fischer . . .
