“O Sacrum Con Vivium” Workshop for Singers 5 July 2014

At the heart of Christian worship is the Sacrament of the Eucharist. C16 composers wrote music of superlative quality to honour this sacrament. We will sing a selection of this music- including Motets by Tallis, Guerrero, Willaert, Byrd, Gabrieli and Josquin.
Where else would you have the opportunity to sing such a wonderful selection of music in one day!
Our Tutor, David Allinson, is well known to many of us, and alwaysavery popular tutor…. we have been waiting eagerly for his return to lead another workshop.
David has directed numerous workshops and summer schools in UK and abroad.
He has conducted the Renaissance Singers and has his own ensemble, Cantores.
He is currently Director of Music at Canterbury Christchurch University, and prior to that was a Teaching Fellow at Bristol University.
David studied music at St Peter’s College, Oxford and University College, Durham and completed his PhD at Exeter University. The history and performance of Renaissance Choral Music has always been his specialism, so he is a perfect tutor for this workshop which is being held in Harborne.
