Spend the day enjoying the luck of the Irish with traditional food, Guinness and other tasty brews, stages featuring Irish rock, traditional Celtic music and classic rock 'n' roll, and an arts and crafts section. Children can have a blast acting like knights in the medieval Kids' Castle, and the entire family can learn to dance the Irish Stew and speak a few Gaelic phrases. Fill up on a hot shepherd's pie and a cold glass of Dale Bros. Brewery's Shameless McDale -- and you might even take home a prize or two from one of the many contests. Learn More
The grandeur of the Tudor Age is amply displayed in three brilliant settings of the Canticle of Mary, in Robert Parsons' ground-breaking Great Service written shortly after the first Book of Common Prayer was completed in 1549. Three decades would pass before William Byrd would embark on his own Great Service, written during the first half of the 1580s. Another half century would pass before the last of the great generation of English composers before Purcell, Thomas Tomkins would proffer his own Great Service (c.1630) which is squarely in the Byrd tradition. The program also features a collection of grand motets spanning more than a century, beginning with a remarkably massive work from the Eton Choirbook.
Robert Parsons: Magnificat from The Great Service a 8; Holy Lord God Almighty a 5
