Midday Classical: Gregorian Motets and Enigma Variations

01/11/10 10:00AM By Walter Parker

Stephen Huneck's 1995 design for VPR

Maurice Durufle composed Four Motets on Gregorian Themes which we'll listen to today.  Also, Edward Elgar's Enigma Variations, and we'll remember Vermont artist Stephen Huneck, whose whimsical dog-inspired art touched people around the world, with some canine-related music.
