United Kingdom
Performers and/or Faculty: 
Peter Holman (keyboard, continuo), Judy Tarling (upper strings), Mark Caudle (lower strings), Gail Hennessy (woodwind, recorder), Philip Thorby (voices)

Study baroque music with the experts, through technique workshops, choral and orchestral sessions, and one-to-a-part chamber music exploring unusual repertoire in various combinations, selected and coached by the tutors.

We hope to include Monteverdi’s double-choir Magnificat from Selva Morale; Beatus vir; and madrigals combining voices and instruments; Vivaldi’s G minor Magnificat and double-choir Lauda Jerusalem; and works by Cavalli, Legrenzi, Rosenmüller, Albinoni, Marcello and Caldara.

Applications are invited from proficient singers and players of violin, viola, cello (baroque or gut-strung modern instruments, with baroque bows), bass violin, bass viol, violone, recorder, flute, oboe, bassoon; and lute, harp and harpsichord / organ (playing from figured bass). Pitch: A=415. Players should have a good mastery of instrumental technique, but not necessarily any experience of baroque playing. Wind players should be prepared to sight-read solo parts. Singers should have good sight-reading skills, and may have chances to sing occasional solos as well as in a chamber choir.
