Harmonia, with Angela Mariani

We're exploring the Black Death and its influence in the lives of composers from the Middle Ages, Renaissance, and beyond. Plague plagued Europe for centuries, and we'll hear music by composers whose lives were upended or cut short by the dread disease. And we'll play a rare recording of Marc-Antoine Charpentier's Pestis Mediolanensis (The Plague of Milan) as our featured release.
