DORSET CAROLS:
A WORKSHOP FOR SINGERS AND INSTRUMENTALISTS with Dave Townsend

DORSET CAROLS: <BR>A WORKSHOP FOR SINGERS AND INSTRUMENTALISTSDave Townsend presents a workshop singing and playing Christmas music from the old West Gallery bands of Dorset that provided the music for many rural parish churches in the 18th and 19th centuries, a mix of powerful voices, strings and wind instruments, with vigorous rhythms, soaring counterpoint and strange harmonies. At Christmas they would go round the parish singing outside al the houses in the village, as described by Thomas Hardy in Under the Greenwood Tree.
The carols for this workshop have been assembled from Dorset musicians' manuscript books, including those sung by Hardy's own family. Generally they suit a forthright and brisk singing style, and make a refreshing contrast to the familiar repertoire of the current standard carols. Like the old choirs, we will accompany them with any instruments that come to hand, strings, wind, brass, free reed or bass instruments.
Don't worry if you can't read music or have never sung in a choir - we'll go through all the parts and think about the best style for singing this vibrant tradition. These are songs for everyone, wherever convivial and warm-hearted music is appreciated.

Venue: Village Hall, Cranborne, Dorset, BH21 5QB
Time: 10.30am - 4.30pm
Cost: £30.00 (£25 if booked and paid by 1 November)
