Fall 2021

In the September edition we’ll turn back the clock even further than usual and listen to music from the early stages of the Renaissance period, the late 1300s and early 1400s. Much of the music from this time comes from Italy, the birthplace of the European Renaissance. This program will air on Monday, September 13, at 7:00 p.m. and has a repeat broadcast on Sunday, September 19, at 5:00 p.m.

In October, we’ll highlight the music of English composer William Byrd. He is considered to be one of the most popular of the Renaissance period and one of the greatest British composers of all time. The program airs on Monday, October 11, at 7:00 p.m. and has a repeat broadcast on Sunday, October 17, at 5:00 p.m.

In November, we will highlight the courtly music of Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, and more. This edition will be heard on Monday, November 8, at 7:00 p.m. and has a repeat broadcast on Sunday, November 14, at 5:00 pm.
