Music from the Age of Richard III and the early Tudors performed by The York Waits with Deborah Catterall, singer.
The concert explores songs of love and war, dances, and compositions by well-known contemporaries – Dunstaple, Bedyngham, Morton, and early Tudor musicians such as Cornish and van Wilder, as well as a host of anonymous composers. The Waits employ the full instrumental colours of the period: raucous shawms, trumpets and sackbuts, rustic bagpipes and hurdy gurdy, and the gentle harps, fiddles, rebec, gittern, portative organ and recorders.
