Through the Day - a Continuo Connect playlist

The concept of curated playlists tailored to specific times of the day is a popular one (and far easier these days than during the reign of King Louis XIV). Inspired by Ensemble Molière's new album The King's Playlist, the latest Continuo Connect playlist choices reflect moments and moods throughout the day. The playlist is also available on Spotify.
