Winter 2021–22

Renaissance Fare will visit several European countries on our December program for a glimpse of the sounds of Christmas during the 1400s and 1500s. Many beautiful holiday tunes and hymns were written during the Renaissance period. Don’t miss our Christmas edition on Monday, December 13, at 7:00 p.m.; it will have a repeat broadcast on Sunday, December 19, at 5:00 p.m.

We’ll begin the new year of Renaissance Fare with “Lots of Lute.” The lute is an ancestor of the guitar and was one of the most popular instruments of the 16th and 17th centuries in Europe. Hear music of John Dowland, William Byrd, and other great composers played by modern day lutenists and guitarists. Join us for our New Year’s edition of Renaissance Fare on Monday, January 10, at 7:00 p.m. or for its repeat broadcast on Sunday, January 16, at 5:00 p.m.

In February, we’ll give a “French Toast to Love!” We’ll listen to the most popular chansons (love songs) from Paris and other romantic cities as well. The program premiers on Valentine’s Day, Monday, February 14, at 7:00 p.m. and has a repeat broadcast on Sunday, February 20, at 5:00 p.m.
