Back in the 1500s and 1600s, you couldn't just use your Eurailpass to hop on a train from one country in Europe to another.
 
Yet a surprising number of the composers of the time managed to get around, bringing Italian styles to Germany, Flemish music to Venice, and so forth, and the resulting cross fertilization is one of the hallmarks of the Renaissance and early Baroque. We'll look at some of this  mixture this week with music of the continent in the mid-millennium.

Originally from central Massachusetts, Jay has called the Space Coast home for more than 30 years. He began his association with WFIT in the late '90s as a dumpster diver for office furniture in response to a broadcast plea for a new chair from a frustrated disc jockey. (WFIT has come a long way since.)
