Music by Marc’Antonio Ingegneri with Gareth Wilson on Saturday 22nd June 2024

June 22 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm

£20 – £25

The workshop is suitable for singers of all voice types plus cornetts, sackbuts, dulcian/bassoon, strings/viols, theorbo, organ/harpsichord and recorders, A=440.

Introduction  The Cremonese composer Marc’Antonio Ingegneri (1535/36-92) is remembered chiefly as the teacher of Claudio Monteverdi while, for well over 400 years, his own achievements have been left to sit in the shadows. This workshop will look at the music Ingegneri wrote for the major events of the church year, from Advent through to the Assumption, allowing participants to experience the extraordinary range of moods achieved and musical techniques employed by a composer whose remaining output is comparatively small but extremely varied.


The tutor Gareth Wilson is Director of Girton College Chapel Choir, university of Cambridge, where he is also an Affiliated Lecturer in the Faculty of Music, is Director of Music at Christ Church Chelsea, Academic Professor at the Royal College of Music, and is an examiner for the Royal College of Organists. While his repertoire covers music spanning over 500 years, his growing discography has focused upon neglected or unrecorded Renaissance polyphony with instruments. He has now recorded four volumes of music by Marc’Antonio Ingegneri, all of which have entered the Specialist Classical Charts and have been met with critical praise.

Music will be provided on the day if you book by Friday 7th June

Instrumentalists please bring a labelled music stand


Venue   St Phillip’s Church Centre, Manor Road, Dorridge, B93 8DX

To get to the church, drive along the B4101 from the Knowle direction into Dorridge and under a railway bridge.  There is a Sainsbury’s garage on the right after the bridge and you need to turn right after this onto Manor Road where the church is immediately on the right.  There is some parking at the church and free street parking by the church and nearby.
There is also a large public car park immediately behind the church. To get to it you turn right immediately after going under the railway bridge and before the Sainsbury’s garage.  This is a station over-spill park which is available on Saturdays at £5 for the day. There is a footpath at the back of the car park which takes you to the back door of the church so you do not need to walk all the way round by the road.
The station is 5 minutes walk away – 2 left turns then right into Manor Road
