Happily, the ensemble Jacques Moderne reminds us of the great French music at the end of the 16th century with a mass by Claude le Jeune and Du Caurroy's 1590 Requiem.

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:
