The White Rose and the Red

Music from the age of Richard III
King Richard III, who perished in battle in 1485 and whose remains were finally rediscovered only this year, continues to fascinate the public. But his turbulent times were also an age of innovation and excellence in music and the arts. In this concert, The York Waits, joined by singer Deborah Catterall, explore the music – courtly and popular – of Richard’s lifetime, including compositions he would have encountered at home and overseas. The Waits play the wind and stringed instruments of the 1400s, including shawms, sackbut, lute, rebec, gittern, recorders and bagpipes.





The York Waits are:
Tim Bayley (shawm, recorder, harp, pipe and tabor, curtal, crumhorn, hurdy gurdy, trumpet)
Susan Marshall (rebec, fiddle, renaissance violin, percussion)
William Marshall (sackbut, recorder, flute, bagpipes, gittern, crumhorn, trumpet)
John Peel (lute, shawm, recorder, pipe and tabor, bagpipes)
Lizzie Gutteridge (shawm, bagpipe, recorder, fiddle, rebec)
Deborah Catterall (voice)
