Friends of the North End Library, 25 Parmenter Street hosted Pilgrims’ Progress, Music of the Plimoth Colony Settlers a harvest time celebration with autumnal tunes performed on historical instruments and with early English dialect.
A rousing sing-along capped-off the evening of entertainment.
Plimoth colonist were a diverse group of Separatists and Anglicans, religious zealots and irreverent opportunists.
They brought with them music as varied as the reasons for coming to New World in 1620.
Plimoth Colony heard not just solemn English psalms but also humorous catches, ballads, Dutch songs and rousing dance tunes. A generous grant from the City-Wide Friends of the Boston Public Library made this special event possible.
