The Waits’ Wassail

Firm favourites in Warwick, The York Waits’ return is eagerly awaited!

The Waits celebrate the Festive Season with songs, carols and dances from across medieval and renaissance England and Europe, performed on loud and quiet wind consorts, bowed and plucked strings, and the rustic bagpipes and vielle.

The programme includes many well known favourites such as In dulci jubilo, Ther is no Rose, Noel Nouvelet, Quem Pastores, Ninna, nanna Dormi Figlio and The Waits’ Wassail.

The “grete noyse” of shawms and sackbuts will herald a sequence of atmospheric music that the Waits and Deborah Catterall have developed over many years of collaboration

Tickets include mulled wine and mince pies
