The acclaimed Wykeham Consort will offer an evening of music for this peaceful season called Buenas Nuevas De Algeria.
Join Wykeham Consort in celebrating the season of hope, and returning light after the winter’s longest night, with music from Renaissance Spain and the Sephardic Jews. Hear songs from both cultures about the mysterious moon, the joys and pangs of love and the eternal cycle of life experienced through the luscious melodies and driving rhythms of Spain, Eastern Europe and the Arabic lands.
The musicians will provide commentary about their instruments (viola da gamba, recorders, percussion, guitar and voice) and the historic and cultural context of the music.
