You won't hear the usual Christmas music at the annual medieval Christmas music concerts in New Orleans by Musica da Camera. The concerts present authentic music from the middle ages in Europe on historically-correct musical instruments. This year, the concerts will also include English Renaissance songs and early American folk music of the holidays. The concerts are fascinating and free! New Orleans own Musica da Camera is the oldest early music group in the country.
