Greensleeves (2006)

In 2006, 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. The Folger Consort preformed Greensleeves from December 15 to December 23, 2006 in the Folger's Elizabethan Theatre decorated for the season.
