The Field of Cloth of Gold

2020 marks the 500th anniversary of an historic meeting between two monarchs, Henry VIII and the French king, Francis I. This extravagant encounter between rival sovereigns, an event that became known as the Field of Cloth of Gold, was reported at the time as the eighth wonder of the world. Music and musicians were essential to their royal patrons and, in this concert, with appropriate readings, music and period instruments, Courtlye Musick evoke the splendour of the occasion.
