London: Music from the City of Shakespeare


Folger Consort returns to its roots in early modern London, where Orlando Gibbons shaped the sounds of the market into The Cries of London, Shakespeare’s neighbor Thomas Morley published spirited pieces for mixed instruments, and William Byrd fashioned powerful and profound music for worship. Hear the wealth of dances, consort lessons, and ayres that flourished as London transformed into a modern city.
