BEAUCHAMP EARLY MUSIC COURSE
Horton Road, Gloucester, GL1 3PT
Director: Philip Thorby
Tutor: David Hatcher
"Following our hugely successful 'Christmas in July' last year, this year we explore Renaissance music from the other great festival in the Christian calendar: HOLY WEEK. From Lamentations and settings of Stabat Mater to triumphant Easter motets, this is a repertoire of unrivalled depth and variety. A core work will be Brumel's great twelve-part 'Missa Et Ecce Terrae Motus' (the Earthquake Mass), which Orlandus Lassus himself directed and sang at the Munich court. The different combinations of voices and instruments which the 'Beauchamp' week uniquely provides will also be kept fully occupied with large-scale seasonal motets by German and Venetian composers including - of course! - Gabrieli."
