Minster Minstrels 10th Anniversary
This year marks 10 years since the formation of Minster Minstrels.
In addition to giving their regular performance as part of the York Early Music Festival programme of events, they made a musical contribution to the York Mystery Plays, providing sacred and secular music from the period of the original plays to set the scene in the Dean's Park before the commencement of the first wagon play, Creation of the World to the Fifth Day.
To mark their anniversary, players past and present enjoyed food and drink and a special anniversary cake at the National Centre for Early Music.
