Divorced, Beheaded, Died

Divorced, Beheaded, Died

Recorder quartet Palisander’s signature blend of movement, spoken word, percussion and singing combine to create a unique historical concert experience.

Divorced, Beheaded, Died follows the unfortunate stories of the women behind the rhyme: Henry VIII’s six wives. It includes music written for, inspired by and curated by these Queens, alongside historical accounts of the role that music played in their lives. The repertoire includes historically informed performance practice from the golden age of consort writing, alongside bespoke arrangements for recorders, bringing Tudor England to life.

Alongside traditional English songs from the period, their programme will include works by Robert Fayrfax, John Taverner, Thomas Tallis and King Henry VIII himself.
