2019 Easter Viol School

Friday 19 April – Sunday 21 April


The theme of this year’s school is Chelys Anglica: The English Viol. The school will dive deep into music for the viol and the broader repertoire of English music. Expect to encounter your favourites — Jenkins, Lawes, and Gibbons — but go further with the motets of Byrd and Tallis, explore the contenance angloise and the music of the early fifteenth century, get to know the great manuscripts of earlier English music such as the Old Hall Manuscript and the Eton Choirbook and investigate the byways of the viol in England, including the consort anthem and the lyra viol.
