Workshop: Performing Lost Songs

A workshop for early music singers, flautists and harpists focusing upon song repertories of the early middle ages delivered by Benjamin Bagby and Sequentia, in association with Sam Barrett. The workshop will explore a range of Latin song repertories from the early Middle Ages, including Boethian song and selections from Sequentia's new concert programme, 'Monks Singing Pagans'. This is an exceptional opportunity to work with the leading group for reconstructing lost song repertories of the Early Middle Ages and engage with pioneering new research being undertaken at the University of Cambridge.

TICKETS: If you would like to attend the workshop as an observer, email to reserve a place.
