SFEMS Medieval Renaissance Workshop

July 8, 2018 @ 11:00 am - July 14, 2018 @ 11:00 am EDT

Pilgrimages from Albion to Iberia

Medieval and Renaissance pilgrims trekked across Europe to shrines in Canterbury, Montserrat, and Santiaga de Compostella, singing, dancing, loving, sinning, and praying for salvation all along the way. This year we will explore the great music of Spanish and English pilgrims, both sacred and  . . .  not so much. So brush up on your Chaucer, cantigas, motets, love songs, dances, and don’t forget to bring your copy of the Llibre Vermell de Montserrat.
