    A un niño llorando Spanish Marian and Christmas music

    The Virgin Mary holds a special significance in the works of Spanish Golden Age composers, inspiring
    them to heights of musical rapture unparalleled in Renaissance music. The workshop will explore
    this devotion manifested in sumptuously-textured motets by Victoria, climaxing in his sublime 8-part
    setting of the Salve Regina. We will also explore some of the charming villancicos of Guerrero, simple
    polyphonic vernacular songs for the Christmas season.

    The workshop is open to all voices (SSAATTBB) with confident sight-reading skills.

    Please note there is a £1.50 administration charge per transaction
