A delightful compendium of 16th- and early 17th- century holiday repertoire encompassing the Netherlands as well as the Low Countries - drinking songs and dances by Pierre Phalèse & Tielman Susato for the "Nieuw Jaar," devotional Cantiones natalitiae (Latin and Dutch Christmas songs), kerstliedjes (Dutch carols) and Latin motets for voices along with variations on favorite carol tunes for recorders by Jacob van Eyck and Jan Pieterzoon Sweelinck.  Traditionally sold-out seasonal performances!  Order now!

Researched and directed by Frederick Renz, this vivid program continues EM/NY's penchant for presenting newly unearthed seasonal repertoire side by side with more familiar early music 'standards.'  EM/NY's men's vocal ensemble is joined by a consort of recorders to perform late Renaissance repertoire from the Ex cathedra Records CD, "A Dutch Christmas" (produced in association with The Metropolitan Museum of Art).

Recorder Quartet:  Rachel Begley,  Daphna Mor,  Nina Stern, &  Tricia van Oers with  Jason Priset, lute.
