Watch the recording of this event, embedded below:

The Plimoth colonists were a diverse group of Separatists and Anglicans, English and Dutch, some religious and some not! They brought with them varied music experiences, and Plimoth Colony heard not only psalms but also catches, ballads, and dance tunes. We'll follow the settlers from England to religious refuge in the Netherlands and onward to the early years of Plimoth. You'll hear music of the Elizabethan tavern and theater, spirited drinking songs, Dutch love songs, psalms from Sternhold & Hopkins’ Whole Booke of Psalmes, and traditional English country dance tunes.
