Workshop for Voices & Viols with Susanna Pell

Leckhampton Village Hall, Cheltenham

Organiser: Jenny Tribe /

The workshop will explore settings of the Easter Day canticle “Christ Rising”, culminating with William Byrd's marvellous verse anthem version for voices and viols. With the help of Byrd's masterful word setting we'll aim to create a dynamic performance, contextualised by playing earlier versions by John Shepherd and Christopher Tye.

After lunch there will be a short performance by Pellingmans' Saraband of vocal music by William Byrd arranged for lute and viol, a performance practice inspired by the Paston manuscripts.
