At home in the modes
For practiced singers and players of Renaissance instruments (available for use: various keyboard instruments, viols, recorders), who are not afraid of original notation.
It is one thing to know the modes' names (about which Renaissance theorists did not agree), but quite another to learn their characteristic traits by experience with songs, motets, fantasias, canzonas...
Course fee : € 110
