The City Musick, Jason Darnell

Catherine Bott presents the City Musick and tenor Jason Darnell performing works by Morley, Dowland and Guillaume Tessier at the 2011 York Early Music Festival.

In the second weekend of music recorded at this year's York Early Music Festival, Catherine Bott presents a selection of music performed by The City Musick and tenor Jason Darnell. Their programme was designed to evoke a musical evening that Queen Elizabeth the First would have enjoyed when she visited the Duke of Hertford in Elvetham in 1591. The music in the concert was taken from Morley's Consort Lessons, and from Walsingham's Consort Books - and included works by Thomas Morley, John Dowland and the less familiar Guillaume Tessier. Catherine Bott introduces highlights from this concert, and short interviews with the ensemble's lutenist, Elizabeth Kenny, and their director, William Lyons.
