Pastime with Good Company – A Concert by the Champlain Consort

April 7, 2019, 3:00 p.m.
First Unitarian Universalist Society of Burlington

The Champlain Consort performs Medieval, Renaissance, and Elizabethan music on period instruments. The members of the Consort perform on recorders, sackbuts (Renaissance trombones), viola da gamba, cornetto, capped reeds, and percussion, combining different types of instruments in “broken consort” tradition to recreate the distinctive sound of English and European Medieval and Renaissance music.

“Pastime with Good Company” is a program of medieval and Renaissance music on the themes of spring, love, and Easter. It features 16th-century wedding pavanes, several versions of the ancient German Easter hymn “Christ ist erstanden” (Christ is risen), and a variety of songs and instrumental works for broken consort.

Suggested $10 donation. You will enjoy this concert (two UU members are part of the group) and learn some interesting things!
