Old Christmas Return’d! – Seasonal music from Shakespeare’s Time

We’re delighted that Piva will once again be visiting Halsway Manor! Celebrating the yuletide season in true Elizabethan style, this evening of seasonal music, songs and stories from Tudor times is the perfect way to kickstart your Christmas festivities. Playing an amazing range of authentic period instruments including hurdy-gurdy, bagpipes, shawms and recorders, Piva will take you back to the Tudor origins of many of our familiar Christmas customs and carols.

“Sheer good fun!” – Early Music Today

Founded in 2002, Piva have firmly established themselves as one of this country’s leading early music ensembles. Playing throughout the UK and Europe, they have gained a reputation for their lively performances and entertaining shows. The members of Piva have wide and diverse musical backgrounds in playing renaissance, jazz, classical, baroque, folk and roots music. They bring all of these diverse musical influences together and fuse them with their knowledge of renaissance music and instruments. The result is early music with attitude!

“We were entertained and enthralled. This group is rich in talent, scholarship and humour – and brilliantly engages with the audience.” – Foxlowe Arts Centre
