Arcangelo, Le Vent du Nord, Ruth Chan

Sean Rafferty presents performances by some of the world's finest musicians. Live music today comes from early music ensemble Arcangelo and Quebecois folk group Le Vent du Nord.

Early music ensemble Arcangelo perform live in the studio before heading to London's Wigmore Hall for a programme of La Senna Festeggiante on Friday 5 April. And more live music from Le Vent du Nord, a leading force in the Quebecois francophone folk movement. They join us in the studio before embarking on a UK tour from the 4th-14th April to promote their new disc "Territoires". We also meet composer Ruth Chan who talks to us about her composition for The Royal Shakespeare Company's new, gender-flipped production of The Taming of the Shrew.
