  • The music of Advent, Christmas and winter revelry has deep roots in the medieval and Tudor periods. The six-strong York Waits - who have performed at Square Chapel since 1991 - explore these, playing instruments of the period such as shawms, sackbuts, rebec, bagpipes, recorders, harp and hurdy gurdy, alongside the singing of Deborah Catterall. Carols and songs that are still familiar are heard alongside fascinating musical rediscoveries from distant centuries.
