This SATB group meets for the pleasure of singing early music usually in the Madrigal tradition. Our repertoire is mostly unaccompanied and we welcome members with good sight-reading abilities. Our focus is on English madrigals and partsongs but occassionally we will include music in other European languages.
We will be starting the term using The Oxford Book of English Madrigals. Other books we will use are The First Penquin Book of English Madrigals for 4 voices and The Second Penguin Book of English Madrigals for 5 voices both by Denis Stevens and available through Amazon. We also will dip into Madrigals and Partsongs by Clifford Bartlett. Additional music may be sourced online from ChoralWiki, oldmusicproject and my own resources for members to print at home.
We are a friendly group and all are encouraged to make suggestions on repertiore, technique and performance.
