WÖR – Back to the 1780s

Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, the musical manuscripts of 1780s Belgium have been resurrected and renovated by Flemish folk band WÖR. Replacing the clarion and the harpsichord with saxophones and guitars and rearranging the rhythm while maintaining the original melodies, WÖR’s album Back to the 1780s is baroque music like you’ve never heard it before. It’s new, it’s vibrant and it’s making waves on the folk music scene of Europe.
