The Passionate Music of Willliam Byrd
2.00 – 5.00pm
Come and sing music by (arguably) Europe’s greatest sixteenth-century composer - the favourite musician of several monarchs – William Byrd (1539 – 1623).
Jonathan Rennert will explain the origins of this extraordinary music, and direct the singing of both sacred and secular works; and he will draw comparison with the music of Byrd’s Spanish contemporary, Victoria.
The venue is St Michael’s Cornhill, in the heart of the City of London, which has been a focus of music-making for hundreds of years.
This workshop is suitable for choral singers who are reasonably good sight-readers and who would like to learn more about Tudor music.
The cost for singers or observers is £12, and tickets are available from www.ticketsource.co.uk - see links
Details of repertory (which is downloadable) from .londonmotet and madrigalclub.org.uk.- see links
