Music History Courses

Spring/Summer Online Day Courses

Four day courses on Zoom. These are all on a Saturday 10:30am to 2:30pm with 1 hour lunchbreak (12 noon to 1pm). Each session will be recorded, so if you lose connection or cannot attend, I can send you a video link with the lecture.

  1. Saturday 28 January: The Seven Last Words of Christ. Come and explore different musical settings of this intensely moving sacred Easter text, including versions by Schütz, Haydn and César Franck, among others.
  2. Saturday 25 February: Stabat Mater. The poignant prayer of the Virgin Mary at the foot of the cross has prompted some of the most expressive and emotive choral masterpieces. We will be listening to works by Pergolesi, Vivaldi, Haydn and Dvorak, among others.
  3. Saturday 25 March: Leçons de ténèbres. The service of ténèbres has inspired some of the most exquisite music from Renaissance and Baroque composers. We will enjoy compositions by Gesualdo, Couperin and Delalande, among others.
  4. Saturday 22 April: Magnificat. The beautiful canticle of the Virgin Mary is sung in the Office of Vespers of the Catholic rite. Come and explore the great polyphonic settings of the Magnificat, from Lassus to J S Bach and beyond.
  5. Saturday 24 June: Handel’s Acis and Galatea. Somewhere between a cantata and an opera, this pastoral serenade by Handel has remained a favourite for Baroque music lovers. In this day-course we will look at this vocal setting of the Greek myth, in both its original Italian and English versions.
