Week off - tune into ThamesValley Early Music Forum

Wednesday 19 August 2020, 7.30pm

Zoom

Thames Valley Early Music Forum presents David Allinson online: the second of two illustrated talks on motets from the Song of Songs with music by Lassus, Clemens and L’Héritier.

Let the scents of summer drift in through the window as David Allinson casts an expert eye over a selection of much-loved motets, exploring their text, meaning and technical challenges, all with a touch of humour. David’s two talks on motets from the Song of Songs are linked but independent so it doesn’t matter if you missed the first one for SEMF on 29th July with music from Iberia and Italy. In this second online event, for TVEMF, David will move north of the Pyrenees and Alps with Franco-Flemish gems by Lassus, Clemens and L’Héritier.

Minimum charge of £5 to attend.

Week off - tune into Southern Early Music Forum

Wednesday 2 September 2020

Southern Early Music Forum presents “When David heard” - the death of Prince Henry 1612 with Patrick Craig.


When the eighteen-year-old heir to the throne, Prince Henry, died suddenly after an unwise dip in the Thames in 1612, the country mourned the loss of a potentially brilliant monarch. Musical grief poured out from the composers of the day led by William Byrd but also featuring Tomkins, Weelkes, Gibbons and Ramsey. “When David heard” was the text most expressively set, and Patrick will conclude with an overview of other settings, including those by Josquin and Gombert.

 

Booking link coming soon.
