The Plimoth colonists, or “Pilgrims” as they were later called, were a diverse group of Separatists and Anglicans, religious zealots and irreverent opportunists, many of whom had lived in the Netherlands prior to their emigration. In this hour-long concert-lecture, we’ll follow the settlers from turbulent 1590s England to religious refuge in the Netherlands and onward to their challenging, though fulfilling, lives in 1620s Plimoth Colony. Includes music of Thomas Morley, John Dowland, and J.J. van Eyck; spirited catches by Thomas Ravenscroft; selections from the Dutch ‘t Uitnement Kabinet, stirring psalms from Sternhold & Hopkins’ Whole Booke of Psalmes, and tunes from The English Dancing Master.
