Join us as we enjoy seasonal music from his war-torn court, with music by Jeffreys, Jenkins, William and Henry Lawes, Gibbons, Dering and Byrd. www.eborsingers.org

Goday My Lord Sir Christemas
A Celebration of English medieval and Tudor music for the Festive Season

Join The Waits to explore the wonderfully varied range of Advent and Christmas music from the 15th to the early 16th centuries. The noyse of shawms and sackbuts, bagpipes and hurdy gurdy herald the arrival of Yule, while fiddles, harp, gittern and low recorders accompany some familiar and other less well known songs and carols that demonstrate how our ancestors greeted winter and the story of the Nativity.
