This course will examine the wide range of music played by the Waits - the musicians par excellence who were employed in towns and cities from the 15th to the 19th centuries. The City Musick is an ensemble formed to perform this wonderful music and participants are invited to come and discover Waits repertoire on shawms, sackbuts, cornetts, curtals, recorders, bagpipes, hurdy gurdy and other sundry wind instruments. Players should be of reasonable standard and bring their own instruments. Existing ensembles are welcome.
