The Garden of Zephyrus

This week's show takes us to a lush medieval garden with The Orlando Consort and selections from their CD “The Rose, the Lily, & the Whortleberry”. We'll also hear sensual garden-themed pieces with texts from the Song of Solomon, performed by Stile Antico, and the tender This Day Day Dawes, performed by The Sixteen.
