STANDARD: UPPER INTERMEDIATE, ADVANCED

We join forces with the Lute Society once again for this course devoted to lute song, with a difference! This year we will work with Clare, Michael and Jacob on the repertoire of Elizabethan and Jacobean lute songs plus songs (part songs and lute songs) from the Stephen Wilkinson generation. Stephen Wilkinson, one of our Vice-Presidents, will be celebrating his 100th birthday year in 2019. All voice types and lutenists are welcome, especially tenors and basses! We will also look at lute songs and lute song arrangements by other composers, and will discuss the practice of creating your own lute song from a part song or motet, as players of the time did. In addition to coaching singers and lute players in an open lesson format on music brought along, there will be scheduled "special topic" classes, in which Clare, Michael and Jacob introduce participants to those areas which may be unfamiliar. The course fee also includes entry to a recital on the first evening given by our tutors.
