16 to 23 July 2022
Benslow Music, Hitchin

The course will be a chance to look in depth at the incomparable music of William Byrd: motets, madrigals, masses, viol consorts, solo consort songs (some arranged as lute songs) and consort anthems (including two newly-reconstructed works). Students will work in small groups at a high level, with one voice/instrument per part, and also in the form of ‘open lessons’. Voices and instruments will work together and apart. Each day will start with an Alexander Technique-based warm-up. All the music-making will be ‘framed to the life of the words’ - led by the texts which meant so much to Byrd.
