The Hexachordia Trio
Greensleeves and Yellow Lace
Saturday 13th July 2019, 7.30pm,
St Nicholas Church, Swafield
The early music trio, Hexachordia (www.hexachordia.com) will perform at St Nicholas Church (Swafield) and present a concert of music and readings inspired by style and fashion in sixteenth-century England.
Singing and playing on lutes, renaissance guitar, viols, recorders and bagpipes, the group presents tunes heard at the royal court by composers such as John Dowland and Francis Cutting, reflecting the upper-class preoccupation with fine lace, dainty slippers and colourful clothes. The trio also play and sing music popular at lower levels of society, including rounds and catches on petticoats, garters and hats!
Sarah Doig – viols, virginals, lute, voice, recorder & organ
Jane Scheuregger – voice, recorder, bagpipes, shawm, rauschpfife & crumhorn
Tony Scheuregger – lute, gittern, guitar, flute, recorder & voice
