Music That Should Not Exist

Program: #13-47, Air Date: 11/18/13

Our recent look at English Renaissance Catholic church music left out a huge area of discovery--the madrigalian motet. Music by composers we may associate with secular works (Weelkes, Wilbye, Ravenscroft, etc.) have been reconstructed by tireless early music champion Ross Duffin, and with this new recording by his Quire ensemble from Cleveland, this music once again comes forth from the shadows.

Quattro Stagioni & Grex Vocalis

Program: #09-01, Air Date: 01/04/09

After we received all the recordings by this excellent ensemble, we decided to showcase their artistry with more of their performances; we also hear more Christmas music with the Norwegian ensemble Grex Vocalis.

English Royal Funeral Music

Program: #13-23, Air Date: 06/03/13
