Firmly established as one of Europe’s foremost early music courses, Baroque Week is now celebrating its 4
Baroque Week is for baroque wind, string and continuo players and up to eight singers, but there are also opportunities for instrumentalists to sing. Plucked continuo as well as keyboard players will be welcome. String players should use gut strings and a baroque bow. You should be a competent sight-reader and confident playing or singing one-to-a-part. Most of the repertoire will be played at A415 although some early 17th century music will be at A440. For singers the course offers a rare chance to sing arias and cantatas with small groups of instruments as well as working in vocal consorts. Full or part bursaries may be available for those who would otherwise be unable to attend.
We will have the largest team of tutors ever this year with the addition of David Miller (chitarrone); also Tom Hammond-Davies and Oliver Webber will be joining us for a morning each.
