The White Rose and the Red - A Tudor concert
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 contempories - Dunstaple, Bedyngham, Morton, early Tudor musicians such as Cornish, Phillip van Wilder and the young King Henry VIII himself, 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.
