F – The Queen’s Six
They bring seamless blend and balance to music from the reign of Elizabeth I, from whom they take their name. – The Guardian
The Queen’s Six (England) live within the walls of Windsor Castle, where they regularly sing for the Royal Family. Established in 2008, the 450th anniversary of the accession of Queen Elizabeth I, they come to us on their first American tour with a program of music from the reign of their namesake. Sacred & Profane: Music of the Tudor and Jacobean Courts includes music of the notable “six” – composers from that earlier era – Byrd, Gibbons, Morley, Tallis, Tomkins, and Weelkes.
There will be a pre-concert lecture at 4:00, and a reception at intermission.
This concert is sponsored by Ralph Bielenberg
