Royal School of Church Music.
This is a Workshop
West Gallery Music and Carols
and is open to both
who would like to spend a day singing and playing
this uniquely English form of music, coming from an era which
consistently been ignored by ecclesiastical historians!
As well as favourites from this genre of 18th- and 19th-century church
music, the Workshop will include settings of psalms and anthems
written by both town and country composers, including some from
the many local church composers connected to our local area.
music is best suited to strings, flutes, concertinas (ie non-chordal
instruments), woodwind, and light brass. Heavy Eb instruments
such as tubas and euphoniums are a little out of character, but
Serpents and other bass instruments welcome!!
It would be helpful to know well beforehand if
transposed music is required.
