This week we'll sample a recent release of music by Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre, performed by Ensemble Amarillis, and hear selections from a rarely-heard masque by Henry Purcell featuring Les Argonautes. We'll also hear Peter Waldner playing an original harpsichord built by Ioannes Couchet in 1646, from a CD called Musical Storytelling.
