Exploring Music
with Bill McGlaughlin
Espaňa - Bill takes on the confluence of cultures, languages, and terrains in the country of Spain. Monday's program starts with the religious music of early Spain during a time in which Islam, Judaism, and Christianity existed side by side, to 1492, when the Jews and Moors of Spain were banished from the country. We continue through the next 400 years, and this week concludes with music from present-day Spain.
