In Nomine: The Viol PLayer’s Favorite Chant with Rosamund Morley
The foundation of a uniquely English consort form is a beautiful chant melody hidden in the “Benedictus” movement of a 6-part Taverner mass. For 150 years, from Taverner to Purcell, many English composers wrote beautiful polyphonic music based on this chant. In this class, less experienced viol players will have a chance to use the lovely In Nomine chant tune as the basis for a series of exercises applicable to all sizes of viol, and, technology permitting, will experience the joys of playing the In Nomine line in a consort piece or two! Geared to: the fairly new viol player, but all viols are welcome to join! Pitch: A=415.
