Concert: Old Christmas Return’d! – Seasonal music from Shakespeare’s Time @ Shaw House
Church Road, Newbury
Berkshire RG14 2DR
Playing seasonal music from the 16th century, the show is designed to help ease you into the Christmas spirit. The Elizabethans would have celebrated the 12 Days of Christmas in style regardless of whether they were in the highest court of the land or in the lowliest village dwelling. With tales, customs and music from the period, Piva will transport you back to a Tudor Christmas. Founded in 2002, Piva have firmly established themselves as one of this country’s leading early music ensembles. Playing throughout the UK and Europe, they have gained a reputation for their lively performances and entertaining shows. The members of Piva have wide and diverse musical backgrounds in playing renaissance, jazz, classical, baroque, folk and roots music. They bring all of these diverse musical influences together and fuse them with their knowledge of renaissance music and instruments. The result is early music with attitude!
