For our 28th annual Christmas Revels in Washington, DC, we travel to novelist Thomas Hardy’s beloved “Wessex” to the little town of Mellstock in the countryside of nineteenth-century England. We’ll celebrate an English Country Christmas with traditional carols, anthems, rounds, country dancing, and a hilarious mummer’s play. This year’s guest artists, The Mellstock Band (Dave Townsend, Phil Hmphreys, Tim Hill, and Pete Cooper), come from England with a wonderful collection of string and wind instruments, including the haunting ”serpent,” a snake-like ancestor of the tuba.
