Sunday Baroque: Memorial Day


Flowers of the Forest is a traditional Scottish folk melody that’s used on solemn occasions, such as funerals or memorial days for fallen soldiers. It dates back at least to the early 16th century. On this Memorial Day weekend, you’ll hear a contemplative solo lute performance of FLOWERS OF THE FOREST on Sunday Baroque, starting at 7 a.m. on 91.1, 107.5 and wshu.org, and at 10 a.m. on 89.9.

Suzanne Bona is the host and executive producer of Sunday Baroque, a nationally syndicated weekly radio show of Baroque and early music which she originated on WSHU in 1987.
