Open to members and non-members, our free workshop, the second in the series, offers a chance to explore the unique English choral tradition that has been developed over many centuries in our Cathedrals and Churches. This workshop will concentrate on selected motets and anthems; music that is by nature, uplifting, spiritual and crafted to the highest level to match the glorious architecture of the buildings for which it was created. (Music provided; no charge.)
There will also be an opportunity to buy some great cakes, as the choir's Sopranos are running a cake sale during the break in aid of choir funds!
David Gibson leads the workshop at the Turner Sims Concert Hall on the University campus.
If you enjoy earlier forms of motet (and madrigals), you might want to put October 11th in your diary! (See details of our annual choral workshop in Future Events.)
Byrd: Sing joyfully
Bruckner: Locus iste
Stanford: Beati quorum via
