First, on February 20 (7.30pm) the Rose Consort of Viols plays at St Paul's Hall in the town.
Its programme, Long Live Fair Oriana, celebrates Elizabethan music and marks the current Queen Elizabeth''s Diamond Jubilee year.
The Rose Consort is an English ensemble of viol players who perform mainly early consort music, including works by Orlando Gibbons, John Dowland, and Henry Purcell.
It takes its name from the celebrated family of viol makers.
At the concert in Huddersfield, it will play work by Tallis, Byrd, Holborne and Dowland.
Just a day later, the same venue will be the setting for a musician who has worked alongside the Rose Consort on many occasions.
On February 21, American musician Jacob Heringman will play Tastar de corde: 100 years of Italian lute fantasia. Italian Renaissance fantasias from c1500 to the late 16th century.
This is a lunchtime concert (1.15pm) with one of the world's respected and most innovative solo lute players.
Jacob has been based in Britain since the mid-Eighties and is also a sought after ensemble player. He plays regularly throughout Europe and North and South America, and has recorded with leading English ensembles, including The Rose Consort of Viols.
Jacob's playing is also to be heard on the soundtracks of many Hollywood films (including Harry Potter III, Kingdom of Heaven and Ridley Scott's Robin Hood), and occasionally on pop albums most recently, Joni Mitchell's Travelogue.
