with Angela Mariani
Easter Through the Ages - This week on Harmonia, we're exploring nearly seven hundred years of Easter music, from the 11th century to the 18th century. We'll hear music from one of Bach's Easter cantatas as well as medieval chant for Easter. And our featured recording is Haec Dies: Music for Easter, by the Choir of Clare College, Cambridge.
 7 AM - 11 AM
Sunday Baroque
Throughout history, flowers have taken on a wide range of symbolism, such as Easter lilies, Christmas poinsettias, and Valentine's red roses. The spring flower Ranunculus, a type of buttercup, is nicknamed the "resurrection plant." And the summer Poppy is a symbol of sleep, death, and also resurrection. They are two of the blossoms in Sunday Baroque's Easter bouquet of music.
