Summer School in Gloucester & Worcester Cathedrals

Post by LMCourses »

There are four places left on Malvern 2009 (17th - 23rd August), a week-long choral summer school based
featuring concert performances in Gloucester Cathedral & Great Malvern Priory and services of Evensong and Choral Eucharist in Worcester Cathedral. Places are available for one alto, two tenors and one bass. Any sopranos interested in attending are encouraged to contact Richard Smith on as places occasionally become available through cancellations.

Repertoire includes:

Carissimi Jepthe (complete performance in Gloucester Cathedral)
Palestrina Missa O Rex Gloriae (performance in Worcester Cathedral)
Contrafacta of two of Monteverdi's best-known madrigals, Si ch'io vorrei morire and Deh bella e cara, and Gesualdo's astonishingly expressive motet O Vos Omnes
Works by Marenzio, Guererro and Victoria.

The course is open to all experienced choral singers with some sight-reading skills. Scores & rehearsal CDs are ready to dispatch. The course will be directed by Ricahrd Smith, with voice coaching from Graham Wili. For more information visit
