The Sunday Concert “To Drive the Cold Winter Away: Music of Shakespeare’s Time” at the Rochester Hills Public Library on Sunday, December 13 at 2 p.m. is performed by Anne and Rob Burns, members of A Reasonable Facsimile.

This concert of jolly music from Merrie Olde England and Europe is accompanied with replicas of period instruments including recorder, viola da gamba, shawm, flute and drum. “To Drive the Cold Winter Away” features Renaissance songs and tunes for the winter holidays. The music by John Dowland, Thomas Morley, Michael Praetorius, and others will serve as an entertaining introduction to those new to early music, or as a welcome return for Renaissance music and Shakespeare lovers.
