Note from Tim Brown:
I have chosen music that is quite easy to learn, even if it is unfamiliar. Singers – especially the more experienced ones – like to tackle new repertoire when they attend summer courses without having to struggle too hard with the notes, so I try to provide music that is interesting for the more experienced singers and as straightforward as possible for those who are less experienced. There is a mixture of languages to spice things up a bit, though that never need be our primary consideration in a short course.
The list of music is quite long; how much we can sing in the week depends on the distribution of voices, sight-reading ability and the time available. But I am sure we shall have fun exploring this wide range of music, ranging from the Renaissance to the 20th century, and will enjoy performing with a small brass ensemble.
I will try to provide learning tapes as soon as, and when I can; links will be posted on the website as they are available. Any questions, please, to Nikos Adraskelas, via the website. I look forward to seeing you in July.
