WORKSHOP ON WEST GALLERY MUSIC

September 29 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

All church musicians and clergy are invited to this afternoon workshop exploring West gallery Music. This will be participatory with an opportunity to sing some of the songs/hymns that were sung in churches in the 18th/19th century before organs became common in churches. Some of these were quite bawdy in their style, and the accompaniment was whatever came to hand on Sunday morning! If you play a ‘portable’ instrument bring that along as well as there may be an opportunity to make up a band in the style of those times.

Please pass this on to members of your own church choir, musicians who play in church, organists, clergy and other worship leaders. ALL will be welcome. Admission is free but there will be a retiring collection to cover expenses. Enquiries: 01604 644301 or 07766 880227
