The Spring Connection

A flowering garden, by Van Gogh


Now the woods put forth their blossoms, and the year puts on its bright attire.” 

So wrote the Roman poet, Virgil, some 2000 years ago.

In other words--as one humorist put it more recently--“Spring is nature's way of saying, Let's party!’” 

In this hour, a celebration of the season with music of Morley, Vivaldi, Schumann, Debussy, Sibelius, Orff,  and Strauss.
