St Thomas’s Church Hall, off Cliffe High Street, Lewes, 7.30pm
Directed by Nick Houghton
Nick will bring along photocopies of the Victoria Requiem p.1-12 that we did at the workshop day.
If anyone wants to print off their own copy of this, the edition is this http://www1.cpdl.org/wiki/images/b/b4/Vic-reqa6.pdf
This version (together with most of the other versions available on CPDL) is a tone lower than the version we sang at the workshop day. This makes the bass line a bit low in places, but it has the benefit of making the 2nd tenor part more easily covered by basses if necessary.
On 24/5 I will look at the opening movements pages 1-12. But if people decide on the evening that we should spend time looking at the whole requiem, we may get full copies printed off.
We will also look at Madrigals and Partsong p.207: ‘Marenzio ‘Scaldava il sol’. Members might like to listen to two very contrasting versions on Youtube. The first https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5qyp5sih-J8 is flexible in its tempi. The second https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mWO6IM-agr0 choses a fairly regular tempo.
We then have the Madrigals and Partsong book to hand and can look at other pieces if time allows.
