Tudor Music - Hampton Court Palace - Corporate Event

I performed Tudor music on the Cornetto as part of a high-profile corporate function in the Great Hall, at Hampton Court Palace on the evening of Wednesday 11th October 2017.

The Great Hall at Hampton Court Palace features a highly decorated hammer-beam ceiling with King Henry VIII’s fine tapestries of 'The Story of Abraham' hung all around the room.

The group of musicians wore Tudor regalia bearing H R insignia (Henry Regina). The players were: Russell Gilmour (Cornetto), Nicholas Perry (Tenor Cornetto, Bagpipes, Alto & Tenor Shawm, Hurdy Gurdy, Pipe and Tabor), Sam Goble (Trumpet, Bagpipes, Tenor Shawm) and Phil Dale (Trombone). The evening also featured tours of Hampton Court Palace from guides dressed as Henry VIII, his wife and lady-in-waiting. There was also a fool (jester) present to provide further entertainment in the Great Hall.
