Saturday, 8 January 2011, 2.00 pm - 5.30 pm, Middleton Hall near Tamworth
Festive German Baroque - an Afternoon Workshop for singers and renaissance instruments
Tutor: David Hatcher
Afternoon workshop for singers and renaissance instruments:
Registration and hot drinks from 1.30 p.m.
Afternoon workshop 2.00 p.m. – 5.30 p.m., with David Hatcher, on festive German Baroque, including motets by Michael Praetorius. We need singers, and players of:
period strings, wind (including lower voice recorders), brass, harp and continuo. Pitch A440. Players: please bring a (labelled!) music stand.
Middleton Hall leave their seasonal decorations in place so we can prolong the festive season just that little bit longer and celebrate the New Year in the MEMF tradition. After last year's Revels had to be cancelled due to bad weather, we are particularly looking forward to this event.
The afternoon workshop will be followed by the traditional Revels, in which we hope to see a variety of MEMF groups performing.
