the great success of the previous
Sing Birmingham! and Sing Warwick!workshops, the 2019 workshop
in Birmingham is again brought to you by
Immanuel's Ground in collaboration with the
Gallery Music Association, and with the help of
Diocese of Birmingham
Royal School of Church Music.
This is a Workshop
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.
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.
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 beforehand if
transposed music is required.
The Workshop will be held in
The Church of St
Birmingham, B38 8RU
