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 Emma and Jacob on the repertoire of Dowland and his contemporaries, with particular emphasis on four-part airs as well as lute-song versions. All voice types and lutenists are welcome, especially tenors and basses! We will also look at contemporary lute songs and lute song arrangements, 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 Jacob and Emma 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.
