In Retreat Spring Song and May Songs

Join singer Ariane Prüssner to learn some beautiful medieval, folk and Sephardic songs about Spring and May


The In Retreat Spring Song and May Songs workshop series was presented by the late mezzo Ariane Prüssner and was originally planned to stream for 9 weeks.

This package includes recordings of each of the workshops, scores and practice lyric videos.


After checkout, you will receive an email including a download link to instructions on how to access the workshops and learning materials.

In Retreat Spring Song and May Songs

  • The Telling began the In Retreat workshop series in response to the first lockdown in 2020. They were held live every Friday morning on Zoom and presented by the late, great mezzo Ariane Prüssner who sadly died before her time in May 2021.

    The workshops are beginner-friendly and being able to read a score is not essential.
