Building on the great success of the previous Sing Birmingham! and Sing Warwick! workshops,  the 2023 workshop at King's Norton, Birmingham is again 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.

This is a Workshop of
West  Gallery Music and Carols

and is open to both
singers and instrumentalists
who would like to spend a day singing and playing
this uniquely English form of music, coming from an era which has
consistently been ignored by ecclesiastical  historians!

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 the many local church composers widely connected with the Midlands.

The music is best suited to strings, flutes, concertinas (ie non-chordal instruments), woodwind, and light brass. Heavy Eb instruments such as tubas and euphoniums are a little out of character, but Serpents and other bass instruments welcome!! It would be helpful to know well beforehand if transposed  music is required.

The Workshop will be held in

Kings Norton church

The Church of St Nicolas
King's Norton
Birmingham, B38 8RU
