Music from renaissance Europe: The migration of musical trends via travelling musicians
Summary: Musicians have always travelled. Many during the Renaissance spent their entire lives moving from country to country, and court to court where they mingled with other musicians from all over Europe, sharing ideas, trends and new techniques. This workshop looks at some of the really big ‘stars’ whose names and music were widely known – and even copied – as well as some lesser-known, but fascinating and influential composers in their day, whom history failed to do justice.
Suitable for fairly experienced singers (note-bashing to be kept to a minimum) – scores/midi files will be provided in advance.
A fantastic opportunity to work with singer and choral director Deborah Roberts – a member of the Tallis Scholars for many years, who was a founder-director of the Brighton Early Music Festival and now runs her own singing courses in Triora, Italy.
Booking is now open. You can either send us a cheque for £35 payable to Worcestershire Early Music to Jill Davies, 23 Church Street, Tewkesbury GL20 5PD; or book online at Eventbrite (booking fee applies).
Please email us if you would like to reserve a place, and also when you have booked to let us know which voice part you sing.
