For singers and players of renaissance instruments

A weekend course running from the Friday to the Sunday evening.
Two lesser- known composers who were highly regarded in their lifetimes will form the focus of the weekend. Heinrich Isaac (d.1517) worked for the Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I, while Jacobus Vaet (d.1567) worked first for Charles V and finally as Kapellmeister to Maximilian II.
Singers should be reasonably experienced, preferably members of regular choirs,
Midi files and music will be emailed to you well in advance of the course.
We also welcome players of renaissance instruments, including viols, recorders, cornetts and sackbuts. Players should be confident in holding a line alone, though they will often be doubling voices.
As not all pieces include instruments, this course will be more suitable for players who also sing.

Registration £50 (£40 for aged 25 and under)
