The Folger Consort celebrated Christmas at the court and chapel of Henry VIII, where one would enjoy music of both rustic pleasures and contrapuntal sophistication. Renaissance winds and a quartet of male vocalists performed traditional ballads and carols, along with music by chapel master William Cornysh and pieces by King Henry himself--in our own Folger Elizabethan Theatre decorated for the season. The Folger Consort preformed Greensleeves from December 15 to December 23, 2006.
