The superb Brabant Ensemble gives us the grand (and rarely-recorded) Palestrina Mass Ad coenam agni providi.

Spotlight on the Netherlands

We continue our long and fruitful association with our partners at Radio Netherlands in presenting a series of concerts from the 2011 Holland Festival of Early Music at Utrecht. We direct listeners to their web site, which will provide more in-depth information about the music and performers we hear as well as more information about the festival:

The primary theme for 2011 was a celebration of Rome: The Eternal City.
