Have You Listened to Ford Lately? - Around the turn of the seventeenth century, England was a great place to be a musician, and the country was full of them! However, Thomas Ford is easily lost in that crowd, so this week on Harmonia, we┬'ll focus on this fine composer and viol player who┬'s so deserving of our attention. Plus, our featured release takes us to France a hundred years later, to the court of Louis XIV, for some of the earliest music composed for the traverso, or baroque flute. Join us!
 7 AM
Sunday Baroque
Hanukkah, the Jewish Feast of Lights, continues through December 6th this year. George Frideric Handel┬'s oratorio JUDAS MACCABEUS tells some of the Hanukkah story in music ┬ľ the victory of the Maccabees, and the rededication of the temple. You┬'ll hear selections from JUDAS MACCABEUS on Sunday Baroque this weekend.
