From the Library: A Baroque Collection

Today on Radio Riel we lead on from Edward Pearse’s Ear­ly Music pro­gramme yes­ter­day with a broad selec­tion of works from the next major peri­od in musi­cal his­to­ry: the Baroque.

You’ll hear the work of a large num­ber of com­posers today, in which of course the Bach fam­i­ly fig­ure fair­ly promi­nent­ly, though you will also hear works from all over Europe — and even from as far afield as South Amer­i­ca, start­ing off an excerpt from Char­p­en­tier’s Te Deum best known in Europe as the theme of the Euro­pean Broad­cast­ing Union.
Then at 11am or 7pm SLT/Pacific Time (7pm or 3 am UK time), please tune in for Part 2 of our excit­ing new adven­tures from our friends at the ZBS Foun­da­tion in the ZBS Radio Hour.

At the top of the hour, it’s fan­ta­sy with The Incred­i­ble Adven­tures of Jack Flan­ders; while in the sec­ond half hour, it’s our sci-fi ser­i­al Ruby 3 – The Under­world.

To lis­ten, join us for a cup of tea at our lis­ten­ing par­ty in the delight­ful Con­ser­va­to­ry of the Claren­don in New Bab­bage (
