AEM ONLINE – Ogni Sorte, Seconda Volta! with Martha Bishop, viol

January 31 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm EST


For all sorts of Instruments, this collection of Renaissance hit parade songs edited by Richard Taruskn and Arnold Grayson presents pieces with challenging contrapuntal parts around easier cantus lines based on the most famous melodies of the 15th and 16th centuries, set by Franco Flemish composers. Learn the original melodies and their texts, marvel at the canonic devices used in the settings, practice the rhythmic intricacies and play either or both parts. As an added interest there will be a few interesting settings by modern composers!  Bring recorders, viol, lutes, cornetti, sackbut or whatever. Scores will be available in various clefs, and pitch will be 440 to accommodate Ogni Sorte of instruments.

AEM ONLINE offers four classes each weekend! Register for any number of sessions – classes are $25 per session and are offered using the Zoom meeting app, or your web browser. Music for the classes is available in advance. You will receive an email with links to webpages for each class where you can find class materials, and the Zoom link after you register. We hope you’ll join us!
