SUNDAY, DECEMBER 30
Harmonia, with Angela Mariani
We're solving an antiphon mystery this morning. It seems that every composer worth his salt in England from the mid-16th to the end of the 17th century composed at least one, and sometimes many pieces titled “In nomine.” We'll find out why, as well as explore the sackbut as part of our “Listener's Guide to the Renaissance Consort.”
Sunday Baroque, with Suzanne Bona
On this final Sunday of the year, Suzanne will review some of the best recordings of 2012, including a last chance to audition selections from the Sunday Baroque Holiday Gift List (at SundayBaroque.org).

Valery Gergiev conducts the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in Sergei Prokofiev's Symphony #5; Henri Dutilleux's concerto for orchestra, Métaboles, written in 1965; and Jean Sibelius' Violin Concerto with soloist Leonidas Kavakos.
