Join singer Ariane for our second course of the year to learn how to sing a beautiful selection of medieval music where roses, lilies and other flowers are used as symbols, as featured on our first CD, Gardens of Delight.

Following our popular In Retreat weekly online workshop series which began at the start of lockdown, The Telling is thrilled to present a three-week Gardens of Delight edition to help you through the continued COVID-19 restrictions.

Taking place at the usual In Retreat time of 11am - 11.30am every Friday on Zoom, singer Ariane Prüssner will guide you through at least four songs from our Gardens of Delight CD where flowers are used as symbols.

Can't make that time? The sessions will also be made available post-broadcast for ticket holders to watch at their leisure.

Each session is £5, or buy a full access ticket at the discounted price of £12!

Repertoire includes:

29 Jan: Der Winter will hin weichen and Plus bele que flor

  5 Feb: O virgo pia/Lis ne glai and Rosa das Rosas

12 Feb: reminder session & singalong

Each session will take place on Zoom. You don't need a webcam and all will be on mute so you can sing without fear. Please state your Zoom Display Name during checkout. In the runup to each workshop, you will be emailed details on how to join via Zoom as well as how to access lyrics/scores.
