A Renaissance Christmas



2010




A Renaissance Christmas

At Gaston Hall, Georgetown University

December 10-12, 2010

 

Folger Consort

Artistic Directors

Robert Eisenstein - viol

Christopher Kendall - lute

 

For our Christmas celebration this year, we offer a selection of English music dating from the mid-16th to the late-17th centuries. With the Tallis Scholars, a quartet of viols, a wind player, lute, and organ, we have the necessary forces to present much of the wonderful vocal and instrumental music of the time. The enduring repertoire of Renaissance music vividly conveys the joy and spirit of the season. Master composers, including Byrd, Gibbons, Taverner, and Purcell, provide us with rich and varied settings for high voices and stringed instruments, allowing you hear the full sweet harmonies that were England’s contribution to the music of the Renaissance.
