Music from a distant past

mon 19 aug 2019
Theme: Early Music

In Documento on Sunday 18th August we’re going a long way back in time with the programme ‘Artefacten en expressie in de muziek waarin documenten spreken’.

In this broadcast music from Ancient Greece and early Christian music. In this way a start on the trail of what once was ; full of good and evil, from earlier experiences of love and suffering.

We’ll hear Ambrosian sung by Ensemble Organum led by Marcel Pérès, songs from Ancient Greece by Ensemble Melpomen led by Conrad Steinman (with soprano Arianna Savall) and songs from the first century AD by Ensemble Aeida Mousa led by Jan Groos.
