Vocal Ensemble Tapestry to Perform “Yuletide Revels”

Part of Moravian’s Conference on Medieval and Early Modern Studies

Bethlehem, Pa., November 25, 2008— The award winning early music group Tapestry will perform a "Yuletide Revels" celebration on December 6 at 5 p.m., in Bethlehem's Trinity Episcopal Church, 44 E. Market Street. The public is welcome to attend and admission is a suggested donation for the performance and reception is $12.

The concert is being held in conjunction with Moravian College's Undergraduate Conference on Medieval and Early Modern Studies which will co-host the internationally known Boston-based group.  There will be further festivities after the concert in the church’s parish hall, with a Boar's Head in Procession, flaming Christmas pudding, wassail, nog, ginger cake, and other traditional Yuletide treats.

The four women of Tapestry have toured extensively in the United States and Europe, and have received numerous recognitions including “Recording of the Year”  from WQXR and Chamber Music America, and the 2005 “Echo Klassik Prize” for their CD “Sapphire Night.”  

Tapestry has made four recordings for the Telarc International and two for the German MDG label. They specialize in the music of Hildegard von Bingen and other medieval composers, but they have recorded folk songs, chants of many languages, and contemporary works specifically written for them.
