A group of Renaissance musicians in The Concert (1623) by Gerard van Honthorst

We’ll look at some music from the time of the Pilgrims this week. There’s no music OF the pilgrims; they brought no musicians with them, and they had no time for such things in their difficult situation anyway.

But back in Europe it was the High Renaissance, and we’ll hear some of the music from 1620 (or thereabouts) this Sunday night.

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.)
