Knuston Hall

Scaramella – Music in the Low Countries, c.1500

11 November to 13 November 2016

Tutor: Peter Syrus

For singers and players of early instruments

So many composers in this chapter of music history had an awesome mastery of craft – music flowing from their pens can be glorious, vibrant, and at times rhythmically remarkably sophisticated. We grant Josquin and Isaac the luxury of two sessions, while from countless more worthy of as much attention I’ve chosen Weerbeke, Agricola and Obrecht. The course will be predominantly practical, and is intended for singers and players of early instruments (A=440) confident in a one voice or instrument per part situation. Your application should detail what you intend to offer by way of voice and/or instrument(s), especially if you are not already known to the tutor.

Apply by entering ‘Scaramella’ in the search box
