Musicque de joye: "Music of Joy" from Renaissance France

Don’t miss this multi-media Zoom workshop! Play your recorder, viol, or other instrument and immerse yourself in a sampling of Renaissance Phantaisies, Ricercars, Dances, and Chansons. Learn about this trend-setting music, featured in 16th-century collections published by Attaingnant, Jacques Moderne, Phalese, and Gardane. Play your own instrument along with a variety of two- and four-part repertoire recorded for this workshop—beautiful works by Roland de Lassus, Claude Sermisy, Thomas Crecquillon, and Italian composer Giulio Segni. Sumptuous visuals illuminate the historical context.
