Music of the Baroque

Today, Sat­ur­day Novem­ber 13th, we explore the music of the Baroque era. We’ll be includ­ing the work of a wide range of com­posers. Many will be famil­iar; oth­er per­haps less so; or they may have writ­ten pieces that we know well but have no idea of who com­posed them — for exam­ple Eng­lish com­pos­er Thomas Arne, who wrote Rule Bri­tan­nia but also a range of oth­er pieces which deserve more inter­est than is usu­al­ly paid to them.

Then at 12 noon and 4pm Pacif­ic / 8pm or mid­night UK time, there’s anoth­er chance to hear the lat­est episode of “Where Have You Been?”, our twice-month­ly show on places to vis­it and things to do around the Sec­ond Life Grid. Episode 20 fea­tures two very dif­fer­ent art gal­leries in Sec­ond Life, yet pur­su­ing sim­i­lar goals of access to both artists and res­i­dents: The Love&Love Fac­to­ry Art Gallery and The Elven Falls Art Col­lec­tive. More details here.

Every four hours from 4am Pacific/noon in the UK, tune in for “The Engines of Our Inge­nu­ity”, from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Hous­ton, about the machines that make our civ­i­liza­tion run and the peo­ple whose inge­nu­ity cre­at­ed them.
