‘Now with Silver Song they come’
Music from Elizabethan Choirboy Plays

Throughout the Tudor period troupes of choirboys from the Chapel Royal, St Paul’s Cathedral and other institutions entertained both in private and in public theatres. They acted, sang and played instruments, and were so popular that they threatened to outshine even Shakespeare’s own company. Join us for a selection of these Elizabethan playsongs. They are joined by the Rose Consort of Viols, who perform dances and fantasias that the choirboy
consorts used to enhance their plays.


“..there are no finer executants - such is their rapport with one another, and their empathy with the music”
