Sing with me! Workshop for participation in the concert on 24 June.

23 June 2023 @ 19:00 21:30 BST

In this singing workshop, we will explore repertoire that isn’t all that well known – the medieval English carol. And like puppies, these carols weren’t just for Christmas! This type of song was unique to our isle and was the first polyphonic sacred music to have a text in the everyday language of the people (although the English was often mixed with Latin). Carols are also absolutely intended for groups of people to join in with and sing together, unlike most of the repertoire that still exists from the Middle Ages, which was meant for soloists. We will also do some medieval warm ups and learn Gregorian chants from different places like Jerusalem, Cyprus, Poland and London.

Although we will have lots of fun, we will also be preparing for participants to sing along with me in my concert on 24 June. There will be another rehearsal on the day of the concert from 5-6.30pm, concert at 7.30pm that day. It is not obligatory to take part in the concert if you want to just come to the workshop though!
