Cambridge Early Music Weekend Workshop

September 13 - September 15

Sisters of Ferrara & other 16th century Italian choral polyphony.

A Weekend for women singers to immerse themselves in the polyphonic choral music of convents in Italy in the 16th century, from the little-known music of Suor Leonora d’Este, Princess of Ferrara, to Josquin des Prez, Cipriano de Rore and GP Palestrina amongst others.

Come and learn with the co-directors of Musica Secreta, Deborah Roberts and Professor Laurie Stras, about the importance of convent music in Renaissance culture, and experience how nuns made their music the true sound of the Renaissance city. Workshops with Deborah and Laurie are always brimming with exciting new research, and will challenge and delight singers with repertoire and performance practices they will not have encountered before.
