    Christmas in late-18th century England was a time for the upper classes to give lavish balls and parties at their country estates. Period wind ensemble Boxwood & Brass presents a taste of the elegant and diverting music that accompanied the festivities.

    Our ‘Band of Musick’, a traditional Georgian militia ensemble of clarinets, horns and bassoon, will regale you with quintets, marches, dance music and regional carols fit for the gallery of Pemberley itself!

    “Boxwood & Brass’ sound is nothing short of revelatory” Early Music Today
