The Early Music Show

10 October 2004

Sunday 10 October 2004 13:00-14:00 (Radio 3)

Lucie Skeaping presents the second of two programmes from this year's Brighton Early Music Festival. Musica Secreta perform erotic madrigals from Monteverdi's 4th book, which were miraculously transformed into sacred pieces by the substitution of Latin texts, for performances by nuns. These will be combined with music actually composed by and for nuns of Lombardy including the recently discovered music of Chiara Margarita Cozzolani.
