This week's show follows the life of Margaret of Austria, Duchess of Savoy (1480-1530), using examples of music she may have known. Pierre de la Rue was the favorite composer of this politically savvy woman who ruled the Netherlands as regent on behalf of the father, Emperor Maximilian I. We'll hear a performance of de la Rue's Missa Sub tuum praesidium, among other works.
