About

Celebrating the 45th anniversary of the recreation of York’s historic city band, the Waits explore the rich tapestry of seasonal music from the fourteenth to the seventeenth century. Angels abound, from the 1350’s Angelus ad Virginem – or Gabriel from Heven-King, to Orlando Gibbons’ Thus Angels Sung from the late Elizabethan era. Familiar German chorales are followed by French Noels and Mediterranean songs from the folk tradition, all accompanied by the full array of period instruments – shawms, sackbuts, curtals, crumhorns, bagpipes, recorders, flutes, fiddles, rebec, guitar, hurdy gurdy and portative organ.

‘…a dazzling seasonal celebration…characteristically infectious and, as always, they brought the music of days gone by to vivid, brilliant life‘ York Press
