Game of Queens


Machinations & Intrigues of female monarchs, consorts, and regents in 16th-century England, Scotland, and France.

Daughters, wives and mothers of Kings, this ‘monstrous regiment of women’ found themselves carving out new roles as rulers and diplomats in a world fractured by the Reformation into powerful religious and dynastic factions.

A riveting narrative illustrated with music (by Attaignant, Arbeau, Bataille, Caccini, Dowland, and Guedron), readings from contemporary correspondences, as well as the sonnets and speeches of William Shakespeare.

Charivari Agréable

Isobel Collyer—reader & soprano

Layil Barr—recorders & viol

Kah-Ming Ng—virginals

Duration: 1:30 with interval
