About the event

Justin Doyle writes: “The trinity of names Schein, Scheidt and Schütz might be known to many singers, but what of the world in which they worked? These were composers who took music in the courts of Germany on the journey from prima prattica to seconda prattica – as did the Gabrielis, Monteverdi, Cavalli et al. in Venice (Schütz himself studied with Giovanni Gabrieli in Venice). This programme is inspired by the Holy Trinity, the dedication of our beautiful Skipton church, dating from around 1300. In this course I will bring to my home town in Yorkshire a fascinating range of German repertoire, from the Latin polyphony of Lassus, Senfl and Handl (or Gallus in its latinized form) to motets by two members of the Bach family: little-known now, perhaps, but absolutely stunning music.”
