Fri 18 October 7.00pm 'Celebrating Queen Elizabeth I with her music'       This concert includes music that the Queen knew very well and that she would have heard on her Royal Progresses around England - although she never went as far North as Norton!       The music will be set among readings of contemporary accounts of her visits and musical life, along with some scurrilous comments from the gossip-monger John Aubrey.       St Mary's Church, Norton, Stockton-on-Tees, County Durham, TS20 1EJ (map)

Sun 20 October 4.00pm 'Consort music from the time of Queen Elizabeth I'       For this beautiful church in the historical centre of York, the Lachrimae Consort will play a programme of broken consort music that Queen Elizabeth would hear on her progresses around England, and perhaps also when she saw performances of plays by Shakespeare and others.       Holy Trinity Church, Goodramgate, York, North Yorkshire, YO1 7LF (map)
