Madregalia was formed in September, 2003 as a forum for singing early music on the Monterey Peninsula. Initially the group had no name, but when it was decided to do a concert for friends in 2006 the name Mad Regalia was adopted with enthusiasm by the group, inspired by our selection of colorful costumery for the concert. The name quickly shortened to one word and has stuck. Many singers from around Monterey County have participated in the group over the years.

The Pastyme Consort is made up of 12 instrumentalists, many of whom also sing in Madregalia. They join with the vocalists to add color and depth to the concerts. The default instrumentation is violins and viols, with the occasional use of recorders and percussion.
