A Christmas Messe: A Banquet of Seasonal English Music

This Weekend
Daily, Now - December 23, 2018
Times vary.

Celebrate the holidays with a repast of English music ranging from the earliest carols to later arrangements of favorites like Greensleeves by Vaughan Williams. The Folger’s 1619 manuscript A Christmas Messe—recounting a tussle between King Beef and King Brawn—offers lively accompaniment to a main course of beloved Yuletide music. A wonderful Christmas feast indeed!  With strings, harp, organist Webb Wiggins, and an ensemble of voices.
