Playlist for 24th April – Happy Easter!!

Written by on April 23, 2011

 The theme for this week’s show is…………wait for it………..Easter.  Now last year I think I simply played Bach’s Easter Oratorio and Ascension Oratorio back to back so I’ve made a bit more of an effort this week in selecting music from a number of periods and a number of musical styles.  Now historically Easter was far more of a religious event than it is now and it was at the very pinnacle of the liturgical calendar.
