Are you already tired of the seasonal muzak you’re hearing in stores and on some radio stations? Cleanse your ears with special programming on WORT! For example, Musica Antiqua (8-11am Sundays) has several special shows lined up. Alan Muirhead will start the season Sunday December 2 with music from Gregorian Chant to J.S.Bach that focuses on the Angel Gabriel and his message to Mary. The following two Sundays John W. Barker will play a complete performance of Handel’s oratorio Theodora to once again show that this great composer is much more than just Messiah. And Carol Moseson on December 23 will play a wide variety of music, with the featured work the mass by Morales on “Queramus cum pastoribus” (let us seek with the shepherds), one of the most popular 16th century Christmastide motets. All this and more on WORT, 89.9FM, Madison, also streaming and archived at wortfm.org.
