“Dost thou think, because thou art virtuous, there
shall be no more cakes and ale?”
– Shakespeare, Twelfth Night
Inspired by Shakespeare’s words, The Early Interval explores European Twelfth Night traditions at court and in the village, in chapels and taverns. The religious observances of Twelfth Night and the Feast of Epiphany also brought about secular celebrations with traditional food and drink. We offer a banquet of sounds and tastes to bring your holiday season to a memorable close.
The concerts will fill the resonant neo-gothic sanctuary of First Congregational Church with the sounds of voices, recorders, crumhorns, bagpipes, vielle, violas da gamba, violin, lute, vihuela, theorbo, Baroque guitar and early percussion instruments.
