 6 AM
with Angela Mariani
Nordic Tunes - Put on a sweater, because this week on Harmonia, we're touring the Nordic countries. Often left out of the discussion when it comes to early music, the regions of modern-day Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Iceland have fascinating musical pasts. We'll hear from bards and religious reformers, local musicians and imported celebrities.
