Music by Andreas Hammerschmidt is in the spotlight this week. His music was so popular in mid-17th century Germany, that one of his contemporaries called him the 'world-celebrated Herr Hammerschmidt'. We'll hear some of his vocal and instrumental music performed by Hesperion XX and Weser-Renaissance Bremen.
