Come and sing convent polyphony with us!

Convent polyphony course, July 2016.

We are very pleased that this year Triora Musica will again be hosting a week-long course for experienced female singers – high sopranos to low tenors! – looking at convent polyphony from the late fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries, including works by Josquin des Prez and anonymous motets from convent manuscript sources.

Come and sing with us: you will be taking part in research in action, as we explore new repertoire that has not been sung for hundreds of years. Participants can either stay in local b&b or self-catering accommodation, or in the main location for the course: Casa Convento, a beautiful Renaissance house and former convent, in the heart of Triora, in the Ligurian mountains. The course will last from 22 July 22 (arrival) to 30 July (depart morning) 2017, with a performance 29 July.  More information and booking form here.
