Autumn Workshop 2015

Saturday November 7th, 2015
Music Director: Anne Legêne and
Coordinator: Hannah Davidson
October 10th, 2015
Members of the Boston-based viol
consort Long & Away bring you music related to their latest
program, which illustrates in music the history of the Dutch revolt
against Spanish Habsburg rule. This conflict, which lasted for 80 years
(1568-1648), resulted in the birth of the first republic of its time,
and heralded the beginning of the Dutch and the end of the Spanish
Golden Age. Our workshop will explore the beautiful music of the
Catholic Spanish court, the songs of the Protestant Dutch rebels, and
music of Sweelinck and other Dutch composers, among them Adriaen
Valerius whose book, “Nederlandsche Gedenck-clanck” (1623),
tells the story of the war, illustrated with song.
Coaches will be Karen Burciaga, Jane Hershey, Anne Legêne, viols,
Michael Barrett, voice, and Daniel Meyers, voice, percussion, recorder.
They will participate in the morning lecture-demonstration, along with
lutenist Matthew Wright.
The workshop is open to voices and viols and, as always, there will be
a session for beginners if there is enough interest.
