The Lion and The Rose: Courtiers of Grace
Music celebrating Henry VIII, his wife Anne Boleyn and their daughter Elizabeth I.
Courtiers of Grace weave Tudor music around the passionate love story of Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII as told in their own words. Both were skilled musicians; here are love songs written by Henry himself, and selected from Anne’s personal book. The fruit of this musical union was Elizabeth, the ‘lion’s cub’, patroness to the great composers of the English Renaissance.
