From the Library: A Baroque Collection

in Uncategorized

by Elrik Merlin on Saturday, 3 July, 2010

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 (
