The Petrucci Canti B Project – a talk by David Hatcher

February 20, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


An online talk by David Hatcher about his Petrucci Canti B project which has involved his students at the Birmingham Royal Conservatoire, and which has been sponsored by MEMF and BMEMF.

This should be a fascinating session.  Firstly David will tell us about the recording project that took place in November 2020 at Alpheton New Maltings, Suffolk, where the Linarol Consort recorded some of the Petrucci Canti B music.  He will play video clips of rehearsal and recording sessions and explain a little of the processes involved, the choice of instruments and difficulties of social distancing.

Then he will tell us about the manuscript with illustrations and how he used it to help The Royal Birmingham Conservatoire students produce modern editions as part of their course work.  He will then go on to explain and demonstrate the instruments; the renaissance viol compared to the baroque viol and the renaissance and baroque recorder.  Finally we will finish with a sing through of Baises moy by Josquin (score provided with joining information).
