A Cavalier Christmas
The Ebor Singers | Chelys Consort
Resonus Classics; ASIN: B075W1LFT3
Following on from their debut release on Resonus – Music for Troubled Times (RES10194) – The Ebor Singers, with director Paul Gameson, returns to the label with a companion album of music for Christmas from the time of the English Civil War.
With A Cavalier Christmas, the choir are joined by the Chelys Consort of Viols in exploring this fascinating, yet turbulent, period in music as Charles I sought to continue to observe the festive season in style, contrary to attempts by England’s Puritan- influenced parliament to ban such celebrations.
'The programme was brilliantly executed and beautifully sung'
