Sing early music – workshop day with Deborah Roberts

We’re delighted to present a renaissance music singing day with Deborah Roberts on Saturday 1 September in Worcester .

Deborah was a longstanding member of the Tallis Scholars.  Turning to choral directing, in 1990 she founded, with Tessa Bonner, Musica Secreta, an ensemble of female voices and continuo, to research and perform a rapidly expanding repertoire of music which has helped re-establish the role of women as performers, interpreters and composers of music from the 16th and 17th centuries.  She is also musical director of Brighton Early Music Festival Consort of Voices, an ensemble of solo and consort singers formed from semi-professional, student and experienced amateur singers, and runs courses in Triora, Italy.  Deborah is co-founder and director of the Brighton Early Music Festival.

This is a fantastic opportunity to study renaissance repertoire from around Europe with a specialist singer and director in the field.
