Festival workshops 2019


Workshop for experienced instrumentalists, plus choral and ensemble singers

Sunday 29 September, 2019

Ralli Hall
81 Denmark Villas, Hove BN3 3TH
When looking at renaissance music, what you see is not the whole story. The original printed versions of polyphonic music usually showed only the basic vocal lines, leading to an assumption that it was always performed a cappella. But this is far from the truth! Come and find out some of the many ways in which it was magically transformed.
Led by Gawain Glenton
Suitable instruments: viol and violin family, cornetts and sackbuts, dulcians (curtals) with possibly some bass rackets and pommers (if you play something else or sing as well).
Registration now closed
