For its annual holiday concerts of cherished music from the early music repertoire, Folger Consort presents an intimate program revisiting its beloved album, A Medieval Christmas (Bard Records, 1990/2007). Carols in English from the Middle Ages—with such favorites as “Lullay, lullow”, “Ah, my dear son,” and “Gabriel from heaven’s king” as well as Medieval Latin carols from throughout Europe—will be performed in unique arrangements for historical instruments. The generously resonant nave of St. Mark’s on Capitol Hill provides the ideal acoustical backdrop for harmonious and joyful early music for the Yuletide season. 

With soprano Emily Noël and virtuoso multi-instrumentalists Dan Meyers and Mary Springfels.

This concert lasts approximately 75 minutes without intermission.

We look forward to welcoming you for this cherished holiday tradition. Please note: Attendees 12 years old and over are required to show proof of vaccination with a photo ID. All attendees are required to wear a mask. Fully vaccinated musicians will not be wearing masks while performing.
