This is a full day workshop with a concert performance of four different setting of the Magnificat & Nunc Dimittis text.
The settings we will be singing will be:
- Orlando Gibbons (1583-1625)
Short Service [Andrew Crookall Edition]
- George Dyson (1883-1964)
Service in D
- Herbert Howells (1892-1983)
- Kerensa Briggs (b.1991)
A bound colour booklet will be provided as a memento to all participants on the day of the workshop which will include the Gibbons and Briggs settings together with separately published versions of the Dyson and Howells settings.
This very special day will also include the opportunity to perform the newly commissioned setting by Kerensa Briggs. Music for this is not yet available but please have a look at Kerensa’s website for examples of her work. You will be the first singers ever to perform this in concert!
Additional information will be added here as soon as it becomes available
