From the year 2000 Utrecht festival, we continue the theme of music surrounding Charles V (for the 500th anniversary of his birth) with a concert by the Weser-Renaissance Ensemble.

Preservation of this program is made possible by a generous grant from Joseph Flear.

NOTE: All of the music on this program is from the Holland Festival of Early Music at Utrecht 2000; among the themes was the 500th anniversary celebration of the birth of Emperor Charles V. This week's performances are by the ensemble Weser-Renaissance directed by Manfred Cordes.
