Description

The Consort celebrates Christmas at the court and chapel of Henry VIII, where, if you were queen, you could briefly enjoy music of rustic pleasures and contrapuntal sophistication. In the Elizabethan Theatre beautifully decked out for the season, Renaissance winds and a quartet of male vocalists perform traditional ballads and carols, along with music by chapel master William Cornysh and pieces by King Henry himself.

Folger Consort with Philip Cave, Robert Eisenstein, Bob McDonald, Drew Minter, Robert Petillo, Dan Stillman, Webb Wiggins and Tom Zajac.
