Virtual tickets on sale now

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 the Coventry Carol (“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 and medieval winds and strings.  

Join Folger Consort Artistic Director Robert Eisenstein for a related Early Music Seminar on Wednesday, December 8, at 6:00pm. Access to the Early Music Seminar is free for Folger Consort subscribers.
