Workshop: ‘Beata Dei genitrix’ – Spanish motets for the Virgin Mary
A singing workshop day for Eastern Early Music Forum. Full details and booking form will appear here.
Devotion to Mary was practised with a new fervency during the Counter-Reformation and the following decades. Spanish composers, in particular, poured their energy into utterances of ravishing beauty in honour of the Mother of God. This workshop brings us the chance to sample just a few of the best Iberian motets from the mid and later C16th century.
As ever, repertoire is dependent on numbers signing up, especially in the Tenor and Bass parts, but it is hoped to include larger-scale motets by Guerrero, Morales and Alonso Lobo.
