Of Palaces and Popes

This week's show presents music from Spain, including selections from El Cancionero de Palacio (1474-1516), performed by Hesperion XX, directed by Jordi Savall. We'll also hear the Barcelona Mass (late 14th century), the history of which is intimately linked to the Avignon papacy. That performance comes from a 2019 release from Ensemble Gilles Binchois.
