Wendy Gillespie presents the third and final part of our tribute to the ensemble that started the early music movement in the U.S. We'll hear about the final years of New York Pro Musica Antiqua, and listen to music from one of the earliest fully staged baroque operas to be mounted in America. Plus, we'll explore some music set to words by famous poets and hear from a recent recording by Capella de Minstrers.
