They were roaming minstrels who would play under people's windows to wake them up, and provide fanfares for guests arriving in the town. Piffaro Renaissance Band featured music for just such an English Renaissance group on their CD <em>Waytes</em>, and you'll hear some of it this week on Sunday Baroque.</p> Sat, 26 Jul 2014 04:00:00 +0000 Chris Snyder 11761 at http://wshu.org Sunday Matinee 7/27 http://wshu.org/post/sunday-matinee-727 <p>David Bouchier returns to the theme of musical cities with a program about London.
