      The concert will feature polyphonic choral Christmas music, including "This is the Record of John" by Orlando Gibbons, along with two double choir pieces, Hodie Christus natus est by Giovanni Gabrieli and Nun Komm der Heiden Heiland by Michael Praetorius, as well as two Latin American pieces from the 1600's, among others. The Pastyme consort consists of such antique instruments as violas da gamba and violins, recorders and harpsichord, and special guests playing Renaissance drums, dulcian (an early bassoon), and well-known local traditional Jalisco harpist, William Faulkner.

      Madregalia is a mix of singers, as well as recorder and viola da gamba consort musicians, from around Monterey County who enjoy getting together to sing and play madrigals and part songs from the Renaissance.
