Well-Tempered Baroque: Oct. 13 - The Portuguese Baroque

Oct 13, 2017

This week on Well-Tempered Baroque, Dr. Lewis Baratz introduces the music of Portugal during the 17th century.  Locked into a dual monarch with Spain, Portugal's music establishment was conservative owing in part to an absentee monarch so the focus was on sacred music.  Selections by native-born composers Pedro de Cristo, Manuel Cardoso,and Filipe de Magalhães.
