Awaken: the National Centre for Early Music celebrates the coming of Spring

NCEM: Awaken

To celebrate the coming of Spring, the National Centre for Early Music in York is planning an online celebration for the weekend of 26-27 March 2021 when a variety of musicians will be performing across a range of historic venues in York.

Events begin with a musical whistle stop by The Gesualdo Six, Beyond these shores: A York Tapestry, visiting Holy Trinity Church, Goodramgate; St Olave’s Church; and the medieval splendour of the Merchant Adventurers’ Hall. 

Other artists appearing during the weekend include I Fagiolini and the English Cornett & Sackbut Ensemble in a programme of Garbrieli, Grandi and Schutz countertenor Iestyn Davies with the viol consort Fretwork who will be mixing music by JC Bach with that of RVW, BBC New Generation Artists the Consone Quartet in Schubert’s Quintet with cellist Alexander Rolton, and Ensemble Augelletti in an intriguing tale of 18th century music making from an English debtors’ prison.
