SingBirmingham! 2015 A celebration of West Gallery Music and Carols
Building on the great success of the previous Sing Birmingham! workshops, the 2015 workshop is brought to you by Immanuel's Ground in collaboration with the West Gallery Music Association, and with the help of the Diocese of Birmingham and the Royal School of Church Music.
The event will again be a workshop of West Gallery Music and Carols and is open to singers and instrumentalists who would like to spend a day finding out more about this uniquely English form of music.
As well as favourites from this genre of 18th- and 19th-century church music, the Workshop will include settings of psalms and anthems written by both town and country composers, including some from Birmingham itself.
The music is best suited to strings, concertinas (ie non-chordal instruments), woodwind, and light brass, rather than heavy Eb instruments.
The Workshop will be held in
The Church of St Nicolas
Birmingham, B28 8JD
Cost £10.00 to include music and light refreshments
Local hostelries available nearby at lunchtime, or bring own lunch to eat in church
