The Renaissance was fed by encounters, both real and imagined, between Western Europeans and Greeks in colonial politics, religious controversies, and humanist scholarship. Hear how Byzantine and Latin musicians of the 15th and 16th centuries—from Cyprus, Crete, France, Germany, and Italy—captured these cultural meetings in chant and polyphony, both elegant and rustic.   With appearances at Princeton University, Yale University, and the New York series Music Before 1800.
