Week off - tune into ThamesValley Early Music Forum
Wednesday 19 August 2020, 7.30pm
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.
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: An illustrated talk by Patrick Craig with music by Byrd, Tomkins, Weelkes, Gibbons and Ramsey.
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.
Minimum charge of £5 to attend.
