Majesty and Magnificence: Andrea Gabrieli & Orlando di Lasso

January 18 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

£15 – £20

In 1562 the ambitious young Venetian Andrea Gabrieli travelled North to Germany, spending as much as a year in Munich with the already internationally renowned Orlando di Lasso. Andrea’s time with Lasso was fruitful for both composers, Lasso absorbing the developing polychoral Venetian style of Gabrieli’s possible teacher, Willaert, and Gabrieli learning from Lasso’s eclectic cosmopolitanism. This workshop will explore some of the most brilliant of each composer’s motets and other pieces, and is suitable for all singers.

The Tutor James Weeks is a composer, conductor and founder-director of EXAUDI, one of the world’s leading vocal ensembles for new music, which he has led since 2002. As a conductor he specialises in contemporary and Renaissance repertoire.
