The Friends' Musick
Making a welcome return to the Herne Hill Music Festival The Friends` Musick chamber choir will present Never Weather-Beaten Saile, a concert in costume of the period to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the 1620 sailing of the Pilgrim Fathers in the Mayflower. They will tell the story in words and music, of that fateful 66-days` voyage across the Atlantic.
Two members of the group are actually descended from two of the passengers on board the Mayflower: one was the chief Elder of the Pilgrim Fathers, the other a young manservant; thereby hangs a tale…………
Founded in 1990, The Friends` Musick have performed extensively around south and south-east England in venues such as historic houses, museums, churches, cathedrals and festivals, mostly in period costume.
