Waytes And Measures play faithful replicas of traditional, authentic musical instruments in performing a wide-ranging repertoire of time-honoured music drawn from Medieval and Tudor periods. The instrumental showcase is interspersed with song to present a truly captivating performance.
“How better to summon up the essential spirit of an era than through the original music of the period played on authentic instruments…”
This professional five-piece troubadour consort would be the perfect choice for Medieval banquets, re-enactments, concerts, and for many other events emphasising a historic flavour or specific theme. Colourfully dressed in keenly-observed, faithful period costume, Waytes And Measures perform the music as played on original instrumentation – pipe and tabor, hurdy-gurdy, organ, fiddle, recorder, bagpipe, shawm and percussion.
Depending on the historic period being celebrated, Waytes And Measures typically perform either a general selection of Medieval music or Tudor music circa Henry VIII. They even present a seasonal collection of Christmas songs, wassails and carols dating from the 12th century onwards.
Performances and set-lists can readily be tailored to suit each event and to meet individual requests. The musicians are also available to give lively talks on music from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. This dynamic, talented group will create the perfect atmosphere for any occasion centred around a Medieval or Tudor theme, and can even provide a ‘court jester’ to act as a master of ceremonies!
