The Wacky World of Weelkes - This week on Harmonia we're going to meet Thomas Weelkes, one of the most gifted of the early seventeenth-century English madrigalists and a major composer of church music. Join us as we look at Weelkes' colorful life and listen to some of his sublime music.

Sunday Baroque
Georg Philipp Telemann's mother was worried about her son's fascination with music as a teenager, so she took away his instruments and sent him off to study law. But his sympathetic teachers helped him make the break from his mother and pursue his passion. Sunday Baroque will celebrate Mother's Day with a Sonata by Telemann played by a musical mom who was highly supportive of her children's interest in music.
