About Princes in the Tower

Princes in the Tower, an offshoot of the Medieval-Psyche-Prog band Circulus, is only ever contented when it has made its audience sweat. This ‘Tudor power trio’ regularly brings a rowdy peak to many a wedding, party, festival and historical event.

At Port Eliot Festival, Princes in The Tower performed an upbeat version of ‘Sumer Is Icumen in,’ with Jarvis Cocker acting as a microphone stand!

The song received rapturous applause, whilst curated by ‘Lord Pulp’ during his Sunday Service, which was broadcast on BBC 6 Music, live from the festival.

‘Perhaps best suited to performing in the gardens of a 700-year-old castle was Princes in the Tower. This is a flamboyant three-piece, that plays early music on crumhorn, cittern (early guitar) and drum but in a slightly unhinged fashion. The Princes kicked up a Tudor storm and their mixture of virtuosity, authenticity and anarchy was inspiring.’ Times review – Port Eliot Festival by Will Hodgkinson

Always appearing in full costume, this eccentric and always-entertaining trio has played at many cultural events in Britain and around the world as well as taking their ‘Tudor Music Workshop’ into schools. Their Early Music repertoire ranges from Medieval, through Renaissance to early Hanoverian.

Princes in the Tower comprises
Michael Tyack on Cittern, lute and vocals;
William Summers on Crumhorns, Rauschpfeife and flute
Antony Elvin on drums and vocals.
