Program: #03-02, Air Date: 01/13/03On the heels of the recording of a lowland manuscript containing English music (heard last fall on our Belgian series), this week we hear The Clerk's Group with an Italian manuscript of featuring music by the great lowlands composer Guillaume Dufay.
NOTE: All of the music on this program is from
the recording Guillaume Dufay: Sacred music from Bologna Q15,
and is performed by The Clerks' Group conducted by
Edward Wickham. The CD is on the Signum label,
and is number SIGCD023. Dufay was born in Berselle
in 1397 and returned to Cambrai (in Hainaut), where
he died in 1474.
The program is sponsored in part by the Belgian Tourist Office
