A Different Strummer

A Different Strummer

Together in Song

On this episode, singing to the beat of a different ... strummer. It's choral music with accompaniment that's picked, strummed, or plucked, featuring songs from thirteenth-century monks to modern American master Libby Larsen, along with harp-fueled hymns from the ancient Sanskrit Rigveda set by Gustav Holst.

Children's choirs are a global phenomenon. Today, host Anthony Trecek King explores what happens when the youngest voices sing some of the world's most timeless music.
