Registration Deadline December 15, 2014


“The English Invasion!” is an exploration of the influence of English composers on 17th century North German music. While a great many revolutions have had significant political repercussions, others have made their impact on a cultural and social level. John Dowland, William Brade, and Thomas Simpson brought their compositional style to North Germany in the early 17th century and their influence was evident shortly thereafter in the works of composers such as Nicholas Bleier, Johann Schultz, Johann Schop, Johann Sommer, and more. Music will be chosen from among the following publications and others:

Opus newer Paduanen, Galliarden, Intraden, Canzonen - Thomas Simpson (1617)
Auβerlesener Paduanen und Galliarden, Erster Theil - Zacharias Füllsack und Christian Hildebrandt
(1607)
Neue lustige Volten, Couranten, Balletten, Padoanen, Galliarden, Masqueraden - William Brade (1621)
Taffel Consort, Erster Theil - Thomas Simpson, Engeländer, (1621)

Together, the instrumental dance repertoire of British and North German composers in this period complement each other well, and imaginative use of pre-existing material, combined with the creativity inherent in each native composer, provides a refreshing musical experience. Our coaches will include Carol Lewis and Alice Robbins. As always, a beginners’ class will be offered if there is enough interest.
