Event description

Description

A celebration of Monteverdi’s fabulous music in honour of his 450th birthday! Come and spend a day singing six of Monteverdi’s wonderful a cappella madrigals with the Baroque Collective Singers and musical director John Hancorn. We shall finish with tea and birthday cake and an informal concert at 4pm. Laura Sarti, for decades a hugely respected singer and teacher, will be our special guest Italian coach and guide to interpretation.

We shall be singing:

Ah dolente partita

Hor che'l ciel e la terra

Lasciate mi morire

Luci serene e chiare

Sfogava con le stele

Si ch'io vorrei morire
