Event description
Lizzie Gutteridge and her live-looping Consort of 1 returns with a new programme based on her edition of Dances from Arbeau's Orchesographie

About this event

Arbeau’s Orchesographie is one of the best known dance manuals from the 16th century and contains some of the dances most popular at Historical Dance groups, folk clubs and Medieval banquets. Some tunes from its pages are still current in European folk traditions, others are well known thanks to Peter Warlock’s Capriole Suite, and of course Branle d’Officiale, since the 19thc, has been Ding dong merrily on high. A surprising number of tunes in the collection however, are rarely heard. During lockdown Lizzie Gutteridge made a new performer's edition of Orchesographie, with the addition of newly devised 4 part harmonies and chord symbols. She's also made live-looped arrangements of several of the pieces for a series of play-along workshops online. Now these arrangements can be heard live for the first time, alongside pieces from some of Arbeaus contemporaries including Holbourne, Susato and Ortiz.

Please be prepared to wear a mask at our concerts this season if you are able to do so (including when seated) for the safety of others as well as yourself.

Medieval and Renaissance concerts on Sunday afternoons

Colchester Early Music showcases small groups performing Medieval and Renaissance music to the highest standards. Regular performers include Blondel & The York Waits and other past performers include Trouvere, Gaita and Passamezzo.

Our venue:

St Andrew's Church in Marks Tey combines a beautiful period backdrop & acoustic with modern amenities including ample parking, disabled access, modern WCs in the adjacent church hall, comfortable seating and under floor heating. The church is located in Church Lane, Marks Tey CO6 1LW and is signposted from the A120. It is a 10-15 minute walk from Marks Tey railway station or 5-10 from the nearest bus stop.

Concessions:

We will sell tickets at the concessionary rate to anyone who asks for one – and we don't need to know why. You might be a pensioner, a student or unwaged, or you may just be waiting for pay day. We'd rather that you come and hear the music without stress than that you struggle to pay or fret about the cost.

Fancy a cuppa?:

Tea, coffee and biscuits are served by members of the church congregation either during the interval or after the concert, depending on the length of the performance. Donations to church funds are gratefully received, and do take this chance to chat with our performers, take a look at the instruments and ask any questions you might have...

PS

This festival receives no arts or other funding. Instead, it is run by musicians for musicians, on a cooperative basis. Any profit goes direct to the performers. Thank you for your support!
