Program: #03-44   Air Date: Nov 03, 2003

In the early summer of 1502, Duke Philip the Fair of Burgundy was escorted into Toledo by his father-in-law King Ferdinand, where they were greeted by Queen Isabella. The greatest lowland of composers of the day traveled along and composed for the occasion, and the latest recording by the Orlando Consort celebrates this meeting.

NOTE: In the early summer of 1502, Philip the Fair, Duke of Burgundy, was accompanied by his wife Juana (known as "the Mad") into Toledo, escorted by his father-in-law Ferdinand of Aragon to be greeted by Isabella of Castile. The great Burgundian choir was met by musicians of the court of Ferdinand and Isabella. This week, we hear the Orlando Consort recreate this meeting from their recording The Toledo Summit on the Harmonia Mundi label (CD # HMU 907328).
