Rimini International Workshop with Peter Phillips, Andrea Angelini, Ghislaine Morgan - Rimini (Italy), 31/08/2014 - 06/09/2014
The Rimini International Choral Workshop (31 August – 6 September 2014) is a week of music-making and learning with Peter Phillips, Ghislaine Morgan and Andrea Angelini in the beautiful and ancient town of Rimini, on the “Riviera Adriatica” in Italy. The workshop is especially dedicated to exploring our great heritage of renaissance choral music, and to developing a performance style appropriate to it, as pioneered by the Tallis Scholars. The course is open to singers aged 16 years and over, and we welcome participants from Italy and abroad. All you need are reasonable sight-singing skills and a passion for a cappella choral music. Lessons will be in Italian and English at the same time.

The Repertoire of the Workshop 2014 includes the astonishing Victoria’s ‘Officium Defunctorum’, his second Requiem Mass, written for six-part choir. This music, often known simply as Victoria’s Requiem, has been regarded as some of his finest and one of the last great works in what we call the Renaissance polyphonic style. Its refined and dignified austerity is shot through with passionate conviction; it glows with extraordinary fervor within a musical and spiritual atmosphere of serenity and fitness for its liturgical purpose. Here is the list of the pieces which will be studied and performed by the participants:
(T.L. Da Victoria 1548-1611)
- Lectio II: Taedet Animam meam
- Introitus: Requiem aeternam
- Graduale: Requiem aeternam
- Offertorium: Domine Iesu Christe
- Sanctus & Benedictus

- Communio: Lux aeterna
