“New Old Music”
Slosberg Music Building
Brandeis University, Waltham MA
Saturday, January 28, 2012
Registration Deadline: December 31, 2011
Music Director:Wendy Gillespie
Local Coordinator: Sybil Kevy
An antiphon ("Da pacem Domine"),
a basse danse tenor line (La Spagna), and a song (Comme femme
desconfortée), join together for the first time to bring you a
day of playing wonderful, varied, little known music. Much of it is by
famous composers such as Isaac, Josquin, Ferrabosco I, and Lassus, but
it has been sitting in heavy tomes on library shelves waiting to be put
into parts for Boston's viol community to bring it to life. This is the
moment! Please join facultyWendy Gillespie, Carol Lewis, Sarah Mead,
Laura Jeppesen, and Jane Hershey for a day of introduction to beautiful
new old music.
This workshop is open to voices and to instruments other than viols. Please note that the pitch standard is a=440.
As usual there will be a class for beginning viol if there are enough registrants.
