News 2013: (US) Harmonia Early Music: "Music For Bass Instruments" (Nov.4 2013 edition)

"This hour, we’ll spend time with composers who played and loved to write for the bass instruments—those you can’t fit in the overhead compartment of an airplane! ...

We’ll also explore music written for three violins rather than two, and on our featured recording we’ll hear chant from a 14th-century manuscript called the Thomas Gradual."
