Hassler: A German Polychoral Giant

Workshop for singers and instrumentalists directed by Peter Leech, Corsham Town Hall, Bristol, 11th July 2015

The lovely upper hall of Corsham Town Hall was well suited to our workshop on the double choir works of Hassler, with good acoustics and comfortable chairs. Peter Leech was in superb form, taking us through a number of varied works by Hassler and his contemporaries, such as Praetorius and Gabrieli, with enthusiasm, wit, and erudition.

It was a day of delight : the 40 members who attended were well balanced, and relished the to-and-fro of double choir music; the sun was shining and picnics were taken to Corsham lake; friends old and new enjoyed coming together to tackle new repertoire; and a respectable run-through completed the day. Thanks to all, especially to Peter.

- Carol Johnson
