Mockingbird Music Ensemble performs Tuesday

September 16, 2013

The Mockingbird Early Music Ensemble will perform at Mississippi State's McComas Theater on Tuesday [Sept. 17], at 7:30 p.m.

Music for the free program consists of British sacred and secular instrumental and vocal repertoire from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. Selections include music by Purcell and Dowland, music from the court of Henry VIII, and music from Shakespeare's plays.

Located in Oxford, the Mockingbird Early Music Ensemble was formed in 2003 and is composed of enthusiastic proponents of the historically informed presentation of music created before 1750, played on recreations of original instruments.
