Croatia’s Mystic Sounds [repeat of #05-43]

One of our most popular series ever is when we featured Croatian music from the Holland Early Music festival in Utrecht. Producer Nenad Bach has recorded two programs of folk and other haunting music from the tradition called "klapa" which are now generally available on disc, and we'll sample them this week.

Liturgy from Armenia [repeat of #05-48]

One of the earliest series we did on Millennium was dedicated to the sacred music of the first Christian nation; this week, we'll sample performances from Armenian communities in France, Washington, D.C. and Providence, RI as this exquisite liturgy is recreated.

A Rediscovered Polish Master: Petrus Wilhelmi de Grudencz [repeat of #05-47]

Only in the 1970s (thanks to Jaromir Cerny's researches) could we identify the legendary "Petrus" as associated with some of the great compositions from late medieval Europe; this week, with David Eben and his Schola Gregoriana of Prague, we hear this lost master.

Le Champion des Dames [repeat of #05-42]

Once again Guillaume Dufay and his compatriot, Gilles Binchois, are linked in another of the superb "I Fiamminghi" series co-sponsored by the Flemish Cultural Ministry. Martin le Franc's poem on the nature of Woman was only one many poetic meditations that characterize one of the "Cause des femmes," the debate that "enthralled the entire Middle Ages."
