The early music trio Hexachordia present a programme of mirth and merriment for the festive season, revealing what Christmas and New Year was like for folk at all levels of society in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Featuring instrumental music, song and narrative, they will bring to life the winter season of times gone by. The trio play a range of authentic copies of old instruments including the gittern, vielle, crumhorn, lute, viol, recorder and bagpipes. Many of today’s seasonal carols have their origins in the Medieval and Tudor eras, and so even if the instruments Hexachordia plays them on may be unfamiliar, some of the tunes will be known to many. Heigh-ho, the Holly! will appeal both to those new to early music, as well as to audiences with a well-established love of this beautiful, timeless music.
Tickets include mulled wine and other seasonal refreshments
