Abstract:

The Quadriga Consort is an early music ensemble from Austria. They present long-forgotten Christmas music and carols from the British Isles. At times peaceful and contemplative, then merry and buoyant, it conjures memories of bygone days and awakens in us that sense of peace, wonder and excitement that the holiday season once held. The band plays fresh interpretations of rearranged early British/Irish traditional music on historical instruments like the viola de gamba, barockcello and recorder.
