Since January I have been posting a Spotify playlist each month for Clemency Burton-Hill’s Year of Wonder. Burton-Hill's book has been great fun for me, and I look forward each day to reading about a piece of music and finding a variety of recordings for that piece on Spotify.
I have embedded the playlist for June below, as well as videos of a few of my favorites from Burton-Hill's recommendations from May.

Tavener, Mother of God, “Here I Stand”
Recorded at Kulturtemplet, Göteborg, Sweden
