York Mystery Plays

In 2006 we traveled to York, England, to participate in the quadrennial presentation of Mystery Plays.  This was with the International Pipe and Tabor Festival, held that year in conjunction with York’s early music festival.  We (the taborers) worked up music appropriate for the mystery plays, and accompanied them through the streets of the old city of York.

It was a great experience, and I’m regretting I couldn’t participate this year (2010).  Especially since as my taborer friends talk about this year’s edition, there are photos turning up from four years ago!  And I want a place to keep track of them, hence this post.

More photos from 2006: http://www.mainlyfax.fotopic.net/c1024939.html.  Same photographer as the flickr set above, more photos!  I’m particularly fond of #17 and #38.  Poke around to find more of 2010.
