Summerschool 2022

The annual polyphony summer school will focus on the rhythm of musical life in late mediaeval confraternities, with special attention to the Illustrious Brotherhood of Our Blessed Lady in the Brabant city of ’s-Hertogenbosch. The participants tackle this superb music, singing directly from the original sources. Advanced amateurs and young professional musicians will receive a week of coaching from international experts: Stratton Bull, Andrew Hallock and Pieter De Moor of Cappella Pratensis will lead the vocal sessions and are joined by two other singers from Cappella Pratensis. Guest teacher Valerie Horst will offer special sessions to unlock the art of reading mensural notation. The results of an intensive week of singing from the original sources can be heard at the closing presentation.
