The East of England Liturgical Music Course (4th - 10th August) is based at Easton College, Norwich, and will involve performances in the cathedrals of Norwich, St Edmundsbury & Ely. It will focus on the great Anglican repertoire on the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, including the rarely performed "English Mass" by Herbert Howells.
The Malvern Liturgical Music Course (25th - 31st August) is based at Redcliffe College, Gloucester, and will take us to the cathedrals of Gloucester and Worcester, and to Great Malvern Priory. Repertoire will be varied, and we will finish with perfomances of several large-scale works by Giovanni Gabrieli in Gloucester Cathedral.
The courses are designed for experienced choral singers (members of choral societies, chamber choirs, church choirs etc.) Scores & rehearsal CDs are sent out well in advance. Course fees (£235) include entrance to all course events, one light meal each day, and transport to Ely & Bury St Edmunds (EoE course) / Great Malvern & Worcester (Malvern course).
