To welcome in December and the Christmas season, the Plano High School Madrigals choir presented their annual Madrigal dinner over the weekend.
Madrigal is a style of Renaissance/Baroque singing that came to England from Italy in the 16th century. Performers from PHS dressed in period-appropriate garb, and entertained the audience with traditional songs, including “Good King Wenceslas” and “The Boar’s Head Carol.”
Student volunteers brought out the courses of the meal, which included wassail: a spiced beer or, in some cases, a sweetened mulled apple cider. Wassail comes from a drinking greeting, “Wes Hail,” meaning, “Be in good health.”
The Plano High School choir and band will next perform Dec. 10.
