This week, we’re going to meet Thomas Weelkes, one of the most gifted of the early 17th-century English madrigalists and a major composer of church music.
We’re exploring music for the Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday and Good Friday services leading up to Easter.
Music by some “cranky” organists from Restoration England! Plus, we continue our look at theorist Athanasius Kircher and feature a recent CD by Chatham Baroque.
We've handpicked a variety of early music recordings – new and old – to help get you into the spirit of the holiday season: Bach, Schutz, chant and more.
Piffaro debuts the recording "Waytes," Instrumenta Musica performs 17th-century Venetian wind music, and Florilegium explores the Bolivian Baroque.
