The Atlantic Medieval and Early Modern Group presents The Winter Queen: Words and Music for a Renaissance Heroine, a concert on the life and times of Elizabeth Stuart, daughter of James I of England and briefly Queen of Bohemia. Elizabeth’s marriage to Frederick V, Count Palatinate of the Rhine in 1613 was the artistic event of the year in London and was the occasion for an outpouring of musical and dramatic art.
This concert will feature music performed by Helios Vocal Ensemble from throughout Elizabeth’s life including the English court, Heidelberg, and her later exile in The Hague, joined by Garth MacPhee on organ and harpsichord.
Admission is free (donations welcome).
