with Angela Mariani
Wedding Bells - Renaissance and Baroque weddings of the rich and famous were accompanied by entire orchestras. Horse ballet, mock naval-battles, operas, sculptures, and grand multi-day feasts were excepted events at European aristocratic weddings. Plus, our featured release this week is Hymns of Kassianí, 9th century Byzantine music, performed by Cappella Romana.
 7 AM - 11 AM
Sunday Baroque
In 1575, England¬'s Queen Elizabeth the first gave two top composers of her time -- Thomas Tallis and William Byrd -- a 21-year monopoly for composing polyphonic music and a patent to print and publish music. They were also the only ones allowed to use the special staved music paper. This was an incredibly sweet deal, and it gave the two musicians a huge competitive advantage. One of William Byrd¬'s soaring sacred compositions is a highlight of Sunday Baroque.
