Sample some new takes on early music for this New Sounds program. We’ll hear from the Japanese early music group, Danceries, and their traditional medieval and Renaissance instruments. Produced by one Ryuichi Sakamoto, this 1982 release “The End of Asia,” is a collection of songs from the 13th to the 16th centuries, coming from such countries as France, Spain, Italy, and the Netherlands. Plus, Jocelyn Montgomery (Miranda Sex Garden) and David Lynch arrange music by the 12th-century abbess Hildegard von Bingen. Listen to Montgomery’s sublime renditions from a recording called Lux Vivens, along with works from Estampie, and more.
