David Allinson live workshop for singers

26 February @ 10:30 am 5:00 pm


£20 (Forum members); £26 (others)

We are pleased to announce that we are running a live choral workshop with David Allinson on Saturday 26 February at Headcorn in Kent.  Covid permitting!  It is called ‘Preserve us O Lord! – Harmonious music for distracted tymes’. 

Music has long been a source of consolation and strength at times of crisis and uncertainty; the pandemic has only served to underline how important it is. As we recover from months during which choral singing has been suspended, and amid continuing uncertainty, David Allinson offers a day of balm for the soul: music drawn mostly from the evening service of compline, whose texts speak of protection, mercy and salvation.  The link to the flyer with all details is below.

Note that booking for this event will give you a chance to watch (again) the recording of David’s zoom session on music for Compline last October called ‘Before the ending of the day’.  This includes his comments, together with performances, of some of the pieces we hope to sing at the workshop.

This is David’s eighteenth workshop for SEMF, tribute enough to the popularity of these events. It will fill up quickly so don’t delay!
