I had a tremendous time leading a group of 14 early music enthusiasts last weekend. The setting was absolutely perfect - a 14th Century barn in Egerton, Kent. The workshop was based on Victoria's Missa O Quam Gloriosum, with beautiful motets by Clemens, Schütz, Tallis and Byrd in the mix. 

I worked with the singers on creating the 'consort sound'. This is much harder than it first seems. Individuals must of course give their all, but they also need to act as a unit, not only listening to each other but responding to each other as well. After much dedication and hard work (and a lot of sight-reading!) the sound was glorious! It really is amazing what a group of singers can achieve when offered the correct guidance and support.

If you would like to talk about arranging a private choral workshop with me, please get in touch!
