For centuries, European musicians celebrated spring with an inexhaustible output of song—hardly surprising for a continent in the grip of the Little Ice Age. With descriptions of budding trees and singing birds, accounts of dancing, drinking, and love affairs going well or gone wrong, Vox Resonat offers some of the most infectious songs you’re likely to hear this spring, including music by Weelkes, Lechner, Escobar, del Encina, Arcadelt, Gombert and Manchicourt.
