Above: Members of Courtly Noyse including John, Penny, Jay, Vickie, Laury, Sandi.
Garbed in period costume, this lively ensemble will play a variety of period instruments including recorders, viola da gamba, vielle, krummhorns, cornamuse, cornetti, bowed psaltery, mandolin, gemshorns, and rackett. The musicians may also cast their instruments aside at the drop of a (Tudor) hat and burst into six-part vocal harmony. Experience their trademark blend of humor, imagination and versatility as you enjoy a delightful afternoon of Renaissance music.
There is no charge for the concert which is sponsored by the Scripps Ranch Friends of the Library, although donations are appreciated.
