Musik Ekklesia, "music for the church," is an Indiana-based Baroque ensemble led by bassist and violonist Philip Spray. He's rounded up some of the top period-instrument players - including Stanley Ritchie, violin, Wendy Gillespie, viol, and Kathryn Montoya, oboe - for this sparkling CD of surprising chorale arrangements.<br /><br /></p> Mon, 28 Nov 2011 19:56:00 +0000 Kile Smith 2653 at http://wrti.org LISTEN: Kile Smith Recommends...
