EBRS presents:
Missa Vidi speaciosam
with ADAM GILBERT for intermediate to advanced players

November 16, 2013
9:30 AM to 4:30 PM (registration at 9:00)
Zion Lutheran Church – 5201 Park Boulevard, Piedmont

Directed by Adam Gilbert, music for the day will highlight the Missa Vidi speaciosam for six voices published in 1592 by Spanish composer Tomàs Luis de Victoria (1548‐1611). Other music will include Victoria’s motet of the same name and other gems by Victoria and Francisco Guerrero.

A special feature of this workshop will be a short session in the morning in which Adam will teach some elementary Renaissance ornamentation, giving participants the opportunity to experiment with it throughout the day as they play this beautiful repertoire.

Recorders, singers and players all “soft” instruments are warmly welcomed: strings of all sizes (plucked or bowed), flutes, sackbuts, cornetti, dulcians, chalumeaux, douçaines…others? As space permits.

Bring instruments (pitch: A=440), music stand, and a bag lunch.

Music is included in the workshop fee: PDFs will be sent beforehand upon request, if time available.
Snacks and beverages will be provided for breaks. For more information, contact Greta Haug‐Hryciw: gr8asf@yahoo.com; (415) 377‐4444.
