NOTE: All of the music on this program comes from a recording made of concerts by the Orlando di Lasso Ensemble conducted by Detlef Bratschke and the Brisk Recorder Quartet from the 2003 Holland Festival of Early Music at Utrecht.

Preservation of this program is made possible by a generous grant in honor of Thelma Kathleen Alman.

These were part of the celebration of music from the Elizabethan era.

The program is supported in part by Radio Nederland and the Royal Netherlands Embassy in Washington, D.C.
