What is the course about?

Celebrating the Psalmen Davids in 2021 misses their quadricentennial by two years and yet, with the quality of this music having been put to the test in our 2019 course, we scarcely need an excuse to delve further into this astonishing and varied collection. Which of the 26 psalms in “8 and more parts” we choose for the course will depend on the uptake but, with a strong group of singers and instrumentalists, we hope at least to consider some of those in 12 parts. Additionally we shall take a look at smaller works by the same composer, e.g. Kleine Geistliche Konzerte for participants keen to perform something more soloistic, tie in something from Andrea and Giovanni Gabrieli for the sake of variety and, time permitting, try some facsimile reading of a Psalm or two. Four weeks would be better than four days but we shall do everything we can in the short time available!
