Vox Nostra with Vlad Smishkewych Sunday 20 August 2017
Coming up on Vox Nostra on Sunday 6th August.
Two composers--both named William--stand out in the French Middle Ages:
Guillaume de Machaut and Guillaume Dufay. Celebrating the 620th anniversary of Dufay's birth this weekend, Vox Nostra highlights French medieval song and polyphony on this Sunday morning.
Some of early music's most iconic ensembles are showcased: The Hilliard Ensemble, Gothic Voices, The Dufay Collective, and today's show will also feature Irish artists and emerging ensemble performing this stunningly beautiful music from the late Middle Ages. Vlad selects several Baroque composers from Spain, Germany, Italy and the Low Countries to provide the spice and variety amidst our medieval banquet on this Sunday morning's Vox Nostra.
