    The Collegium specializes in the performance of music from the Middle Ages to the late 17th century; this fall’s program will explore music from the court of Henry VIII. Henry was the epitome of the humanist prince, surrounding himself with philosophers, rhetoricians, statesmen and artists of all sorts. He had a special love of music and this love was displayed in his cultivation of musical establishments and patronage of local composers and singers. He also acquired a sizable collection of musical instruments and imported instrumentalists from abroad to play them. The Collegium will present a program of songs and instrumental works from the Henry VIII MS and associated works in the historical context of Henry's serial marriages to six intriguing women.
