A new programme created to mark the 400th anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower.
In Autumn 1620, a ship named the Mayflower left England for the New World. This much is well known. What is perhaps less well known is that some of the passengers carried books of music with them.

Our programme aims to recreate the world of the 102 passengers, and of the sailors on board the Mayflower. The title 'They that in Ships unto the Sea down go' comes from the text of Psalm 107 in Henry Ainsworth’s Psalter of 1612, one of the books carried on board the Mayflower by Elder William Brewster.
The programme is made of of psalms, lutesongs and ballads, all taken from books believed to have been in William Brewster's library; music for mariners and merchants; and songs and dances describing tobacco and other wonders of the New World.

The programme includes music by: Richard Allison, Louis Bourgeois, Thomas Campion, John Dowland, Thomas Ford and Tobias Hume.
