Pfeiffern!  Music for Renaissance Towns, Courts, and Cathedrals

The 16th century saw an unprecedented flowering of musical styles and instruments. In this concert, Piffaro celebrates German Pfeiffern (wind players) and the tools of their trade with their vast Instrumentarium of shawms, recorders, dulcians, sackbuts, and bagpipes, showcasing works created by composers of the German Renaissance for civic ceremonies, courtly celebrations, and religious worship.
