Discography: (US) A Springtime Celebration With Early Music Song And Dance (Harmonia Early Music radio recording) (2011 March 29)

Contributed by Admin on Apr 22, 2011

Harmonia celebrates springtime with songs and dance music from the Middle Ages, Renaissance, and early Baroque.

In temperate regions, there is no more highly-anticipated season of the year than spring. After many long and dreary winter months, spring brings relief in the form of warmer weather, more sun, a welcoming outdoors, and the flowering of trees and other vegetation. Spring can be seen, heard, and felt.

Historically, spring has always been celebrated in one way or another. One of the most lasting ways is to feature the time of year in song. Since at least the Middle Ages, songs about spring have reminded us there is much to celebrate with the season’s arrival.
