Viola da Gamba Society—New England
Spring Workshop 2012

Les Amours de Mai
Consorts from the Age of Ronsard


Hancock United Church of Christ
1912 Mass. Ave., Lexington MA

Saturday, April 21, 2012

Registration Deadline: March 24, 2012

Music Director: Lisa Terry
with members of Parthenia
Coordinator: Anne Legêne


Parthenia explores the exuberant 16th-century French repertoire, much of which was inspired by the greatest poet of the age, Pierre de Ronsard.   

The workshop will offer classes on chansons and airs de cour by Claude le Jeune, Andre Pevernage, Pierre Bonnet, Guillaume Costeley and Claude Goudimel; fantasias by Le Jeune and Eustache du Caurroy; ricercare from Musique de joye; early French Renaissance dances collected by Michael Praetorius; and instrumental diminutions and ornamented chansons. A beginners’ class will be offered if there is enough interest. 

The members of Parthenia, Beverly Au, Larry Lipnik, Ros Morley, and Lisa Terry, along with local New England faculty, bring to their teaching virtuosity, passion and rich experience. In a special after-workshop concert, Parthenia will perform "Love Songs in the Age of Ronsard,” with tenor Jason McStoots and Duo Maresienne, at 7:30 pm at Hancock United Church of Christ.

Boulder Early Music Shop, represented by Anthony Allen, will be present at the workshop. He will have a variety of sizes of viols and printed music. If you have a request for a specific model of viol, or any other instrument, please contact Anthony Allen in advance at 207-484-2084.
