We mark Plymouth’s 400th anniversary in this concert, rescheduled from 2020. The early Plimoth colonists, or “Pilgrims” as they were later called, were a diverse group of Separatists and Anglicans, religious zealots and irreverent opportunists. They brought with them music experiences as varied as their reasons for coming to the New World. This lively program creates a musical backdrop for the settlers, moving from their homes in England’s cities and countryside to religious refuge in the Netherlands, and onward to their challenging new lives in the New World. We present music of the Elizabethan tavern and theater, spirited catches, Dutch songs, stirring psalms from the Ainsworth Psalter, and vigorous 17th-century dance tunes, all performed on period instruments. We also read fictitious “diary entries” of the colonists in Original Pronunciation, as English sounded in the time of Shakespeare, Queen Elizabeth I—and the Pilgrims!

Meet the musicians at a reception afterwards! Copies of our album “Pilgrims’ Progress” will be available for sale.
