Building on the repertoire from our previous workshop, we will add further pieces for Candlemas where everybody is invited to join in by singing the communal response

Gregorian chant is an ancient communal song tradition with its roots in the medieval Church, but its calming, meditative effect has made it a surprise hit in lockdown.
Sing in the comfort of your own home (where no strangers can hear you!) in this online choir session suitable for the absolute beginner.
Medieval researchers will also give a brief introduction to the 15th-century manuscript from the Cistercian nunnery of Medingen where the music is preserved.
