About the Show


What is a madrigal? What were you most likely to hear in churches eight to nine hundred years ago? Who wrote the first operas? What is the devil in music? Join your host Aatman Vakil on an epic journey, bouncing around different times and places, all before the year 1750. Ponder behind composers’ motives and intentions.

Listen to some of the most influential, charming, eye-watering, joy-deriving pieces- sacred, secular, vocal, instrumental- and discuss why these pieces or styles are so beautiful. Delve into the wonderful, yet often neglected repertoire of the pre-Bach years and leave refreshed, excited, and hungry for more Early Music!
