Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy

Tinker, Tailor, / Soldier, Sailor, / Rich Man, Poor Man, / Beggar Man, Thief.  It’s an old English nursery rhyme, but most of us know it from the title of a popular 1970s spy thriller. In Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, these occupations were code names, but this week on Harmonia we’re taking them literally, as we listen to music by men of war, men of craft, and men of espionage.

Ring Around the Rosie

We’re exploring the Black Death and its influence in the lives of composers from the Middle Ages, Renaissance, and beyond. Plague plagued Europe for centuries, and we’ll hear music by composers whose lives were upended or cut short by the dread disease. And we’ll play a rare recording of Marc-Antoine Charpentier’s Pestis Mediolanensis—The Plague of Milan—on our featured release.

Quit Your Day Job!

A lot of parents aren’t thrilled with the idea of their child pursuing a career in music. Apparently this isn’t a new sentiment. This week, we’ll hear music by astrologers, cabinet makers, poets, and others who ducked, or bucked, their non-musical lives to compose music of lasting power.
