A Christmas Messe - A Banquet of Seasonal English Music
About A Christmas Messe - A Banquet of Seasonal English Music
Celebrate the holidays with a repast of English music ranging from the earliest carols to later arrangements of favorites like "Greensleeves" by Vaughan Williams. The Folger’s 1619 manuscript 'A Christmas Messe'—recounting a tussle between King Beef and King Brawn—offers lively accompaniment to a main course of beloved Yuletide music. A wonderful Christmas feast indeed! With strings, harp, organist Webb Wiggins, an ensemble of voices, and reading by actor Rick Faucheaux.
