40th Anniversary of the Taverner Consort - "Una Stravaganza dei Medici"

The marriage of Grand Duke Ferdinando de' Medici and French princess Christine of Lorraine in 1589 was a landmark event that wrote musical history. The highlight of this royal festivity was the performance of the comedy "La Pellegrina".

The album "Una Stravaganza dei Medici" by Andrew Parrott and his Taverner Consort, an excellent recording of this piece, is legendary and is now, in celebration of the 40th Anniversary of this outstanding ensemble, being re-released in the series REDISCOVERIES.
