Nuns – with Tutor Prof Laurie Stras
July 16 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Professor Laurie Stras is co-director of two early music ensembles, Musica Secreta and my amateur female-voice choir, Celestial Sirens. Together we research and perform 16th-century music as it would have been performed by female musicians in courts and convents. We have performed all over Europe, in venues as diverse as the Queen Elizabeth Hall, a tent at Latitude Festival and an ex-convent in the Italian mountains. This workshop will explore music for female voices that would have been sung by nuns, accompanied by viol players of any gender.
More details later and booking will open early June.
