  • Profile

    Named after the supporters of King Charles I of England, The Cavalier Consort has been playing 17th-century English music in greater Boston since 2013. They specialize in broken consort repertoire featuring combinations of viols and baroque violins among with harpsichord and theorbo, and they’ll even sing you a ballad or two.  The Cavaliers share a love of bizarre and wonderful music by composers such as William Lawes, John Jenkins, Christopher Simpson, and Matthew Locke. They’re joined by guest vocalist Anna de Bakker for their Porchfest show, which features stirring instrumental music from court and tavern interspersed with songs about royalist politics, sex and drinking.
