Did you know that choir practice is healthier than yoga?

If you are an amateur singer passionate about classical music with some prior experience of choral performance, treat yourself to an uplifting workshop on 27th October in the atmospheric surroundings of St Cuthbert's Church, and come and see what this feel-good choral craze is all about – it's the perfect opportunity to exercise and socialise!

This one-day workshop will explore Portuguese composer

Duarte Lobo’s eight-part Requiem. Published as the last work in his 1621 collection of Masses, this work epitomises the skill of this Portuguese Master who grew up in Evora and went on to direct the Cathedral Choirs both there and in Lisbon. He elegantly weaves the eight voices in a style which pays homage to Palestrina’s smooth control as well as reflecting the genius of Victoria and Guerrero. If you have enjoyed Victoria’s Requiem in the past then this will be a fascinating exploration of the same text.


You’ll be amazed how quickly you can learn a new piece with the help of our friendly conductor Patrick Craig - one of the UK's most sought-after Renaissance choral directors. A countertenor and graduate of Cambridge University and the RCM, and a former member of the Tallis Scholars, Patrick has conducted at the Lichfield Festival and BBC Proms, and now sings with the award-winning group, The Cardinall's Musick. He is also Vicar Choral at St Paul's Cathedral, as well as conducting the UK's leading all-female choir, Aurora Nova. A frequent and especially popular collaborator with Lacock Courses, Patrick has also run workshops worldwide for the Early Music Academy, Beverley Early Music Festival and RunbySingers.
