Early Music Now with Sara Schneider (EMN 18-01) [New Series]

What's your name again?

For every Bach or Josquin there's a Weichlein, Leyding, or de Grudencz. This week's program introduces six composers whose names never made it into the history books, but who composed music well worth hearing! We'll hear from La Morra, from a 2017 release, plus Ensemble Masques and Club Medieval.
