Christmas season is now a distant memory, but one of the most memorable tunes from the time, 'In dulci jubilo' was written by a man who died this week back in 1629--Hieronymus Praetorius. However, this German composer and organist was also responsible for a number of other wonderful musical works. Unrelated to his arguable more famous and earlier colleague of the same surname, Hieronymus was one of the first German composers to show the influence of the Venetian style. Vlad explores his choral and organ compositions on today's programme, and takes some time to help Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart blow out some candles on his 262nd birthday cake, as well.
