Christmas, St. Stephen's Day, and the waning of the old year- we're celebrating them all on this week's show! We'll hear more tracks from Cappella Romana's recent release A Byzantine Emperor at King Henry's Court (Christmas 1400, London) along with chant and polyphony for St. Stephen's Day sung by the Orlando Consort. We'll also ring out the old year with music by Samuel Scheidt and Johann Schop.
