Purcell composed hundreds of canons (catches) intended to be sung in taverns over a drink. These musical pieces, written to be quickly learned and sung, nevertheless benefit from the immense talent of their illustrious author.
The canon technique is based on a melody of varying simplicity and length, which is easy to learn and quickly produces an exciting musical result.
Combining simplicity, obviousness and great harmonic richness, this music offers a particularly privileged field in which to approach choral vocality.
Within everyone's reach, since no prior knowledge of music reading is required, it offers a welcoming and joyful gateway to focus attention and effort on the voice and singing.

The aim of these workshops will be to explore, work on and refine each chorister's vocal technique, focusing on breathing, intonation and listening, culminating in the mastery of a set of joyful, lively pieces, which could be the subject of a concert or event during the year.

This workshop will take place over 4 sessions of 2 to 3 hours each on Friday evenings, and will be led by Cecil Gallois, artistic director of the Tarentule vocal ensemble.

Registration form enclosed.
