The superb Baroque ensemble in sacred works by Charpentier and Carissimi. We continue our long and fruitful association with our partners at Radio Netherlands in presenting a series of concerts from the 2010 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 2010 was a celebration of the French Baroque in collaboration with the Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles.
