A Renaissance Christmas with Festival Consort
The Festival Consort, founded in 1976 by Joanna Bramel Young and Lyn Elder, will be performing its acclaimed concert "Renaissance Glory".  

Beloved vocalists Carol Menke, soprano, and Chris Fritzsche, countertenor, join the four accomplished instrumentalists  director David Hogan Smith, Joanna Bramel Young, Alan Paul and Robert Cronin for an afternoon of traditional carols and other works by renaissance composers.

The instruments played by the ensemble include shawms, sackbut, recorders, crumhorns, schreyerpfeifen, guitar, doucaine and curtals.  These fine instruments are meticulous copies of renaissance models.  The reeds are made by David Hogan Smith, author of Reed Design for Early Woodwinds.  Robert Cronin, an internationally known instrument builder, crafted the shawms and the bass curtal (renaissance bassoon).  Thomas Prescott built all of the recorders played by the ensemble creating a beautifully matched consort. This year we introduce a new set of alto and tenor renaissance bassoons (curtals).

Pieces on the program includea six-part Ave Maria by Josquin Desprez, variations on the familiar German song Nun komm der Heyden Heyland, and instrumental works by Victoria, Marenzio and Hassler.  More information about the Festival Consort can be found on their website:  www.festival-consort.com
