Add Milton Consort - This Olde English to your Itinerary

Milton Consort Group

This Olde English is an evening that brings our medieval theme right to the fore, mixing original words and authentic music. Actor Peter Hamilton Dyer (BBC Radio Drama Company) has woven a compelling narrative using excerpts from the beginnings of our national vernacular. Enjoy pieces from the myth of King Arthur, family letters from the Paston household; eulogies by Geoffrey of Monmouth; Merlin's remarkable prophecies, and the global vision of John Mandeville's Travel diaries which tells us in brilliant guide- book fashion how to get to Jerusalem and back and where the best sights are to be seen.

This is a humorous and accessible presentation of classic texts illuminated by period music on authentic instruments. In the perfect medieval setting of Chester Cathedral, this show promises to be an unmissable treat.

Originally formed to perform their version of Milton’s Samson Agonistes in 2000, The Milton Consort comprises actor Peter Hamilton Dyer and musicians Keith McGowan and Arngeir Hauksson. The trio met, and still perform at, Shakespeare's Globe in London.
