Sunday Baroque, with Suzanne Bona
Saint Cecilia was the patron saint of music and musicians, so it’s no surprise that composers wrote music in honor of her. November 22nd is Saint Cecilia’s feast day, and this morning’s show will mark the occasion with a variety of baroque music created in tribute to her.
