American composer Nico Muhly continues his exploration of favorite choral repertoire, this time, focusing on the late-17th century English music of Henry Purcell and John Blow. He closes the program by going back to the Renaissance works of Thomas Weelkes.

Courtesy of WQXR Public Radio, New York City, the program gives us a fascinating look into the mind of a young modern composer—his memories, tastes, and obsessions.
