Spanish Music on the BBC

Michael Armstrong Roche writes in:

“This week the BBC-3 (classical radio) is presenting 5 1-hour programs on Spanish Baroque music (1600-1750).  It appears that since Jordi Savall (et al.) helped put Spanish medieval and Renaissance music back on the map, attention is now being turned to this exceptionally rich period (an early music archival, performance and recording renaissance now underway in Spain is driving this).  The presenter is Donald MacLeod and the programs are being archived for 7 days.  I listened to the first program yesterday and thought it was well-done:  a great variety of tonalities, genres, composers, and patrons, together with (mostly) apt commentary.  The second program has already been broadcast and is archived with the first and there will be three more over the next three days.”
