For their first-ever presentation by EMV, The King’s Singers will share an evening of mostly period music depicting life in Tudor England. King Henry VIII, renowned for his political acumen and celebrated for his intellect and love of music and the arts, presided over one of the most culturally rich courts of renaissance Europe. By delving into 16th and 17th century texts on the themes of death, health, and love, The King’s Singers will explore some of the drama that characterized life under the rule of one of England’s most intriguing and unpredictable monarchs.
