Event Details

The acclaimed Wykeham Consort return to Gunn Memorial Library in Washington, CT for an entertaining concert Song and Stories for a Winter’s Night from Spain and the Sephardim.

Wykeham Consort will share some of the songs and stories they have discovered in researching the music of Spain and the Spanish Jews, the Sephardim. In their journeys through Arabic and Eastern European lands, new melodic and rhythmic influences and even words became part of their musical heritage. Folk tales from the Middle Ages travelled with them, including stories of falling in love with the wrong person, patient suitors, lonely young women, sly affairs and mothers comforting their babies in dangerous times. People share many kinds of love and sadness; we may see ourselves in stories from other lands and earlier times. Come enjoy an evening with Wykeham Consort!
