This week's show takes us to a lush medieval garden with The Orlando Consort, with selections from their CD The Rose, the Lily, & the Whortleberry. We'll also hear sensual garden-themed pieces with texts from the Song of Solomon, performed by Stile Antico, and the tender This Day Day Dawes, performed by The Sixteen.
