Viol Consort Day 20th November 2019

Great to welcome another player new to the group today! We played in two consorts for most of the day, meeting up to play polychoral Gabrieli and Mouton in the final session.

Viol Consort Day 18th September 2019

It was good to have a new participant join the regulars and to welcome back those returning after illness. Everyone was friendly and welcoming and the consorts worked out well. We tried some Holborne which was a new departure for us and finished the day with a 9 part piece by Melchior Frank and an arrangement of Brigg Fair by Percy Grainger which worked very well on the viols.

Viol Consort Day May 22nd 2019.

Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures at the day we had on 22nd  May 2019. However we had a good day playing Lupo, Byrd, Ward, East and Gibbons. Alison Kinder was in great demand for private lessons in the afternoon and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day.

Viol consrt day February 20th 2019

The latest in our series of days coached by Alison Kinder. 11 players formed two consorts and were coached in the morning on a range of repertoire including Gibbons, Byrd and Okeover. In the afternoon, many took the opportunity to have a private lesson with Alison while the others continued playing. The afternoon ended by singing and playing Lotti's 8 part Crucifixus which worked really well with viols and voices before a spirited performance of an 8 part canzona by Gabrieli.
