29 August to 2 September 2021, Salisbury
Join David in Sarum College, Salisbury for five days of music making, organised by singing holiday specialists, Run By Singers. Celebrate the seasons of the sacred and secular calendars with a range of British choral music through the ages – from plainsong and anthems by Tallis, Gibbons, Wesley and Howells to folksongs, madrigals by Morley and part songs by Elgar, Holst and Stanford.
During the week there will be opportunities to sing in St Martin’s Church, Salisbury, Romsey Abbey and Salisbury Cathedral. Transport to and from Romsey will be arranged and is included in the course fee.
This will be a residential week based in the Sarum College conference centre where participants will stay as a group, sharing meals, music and fellowship.
This course is for experienced singers who want to improve their choral technique and enjoy exploring a rich mix of repertoire in a convivial social setting. Singing couples and individual singers are all welcome. Music will be sent out in advance and, while nobody is expected to be note-perfect on arrival, singers are expected to familiarise themselves with the music beforehand. This is not a course for beginners, but if you are singing regularly in a choral society or church choir you should find it comfortable and well-paced.
Sarum College is in the heart of the City Centre and the amount of walking and standing involved during the week should not challenge anyone of average fitness. If you have concerns about the required level of activity please contact Run By Singers in confidence before you book.
