This weekend course is for singers and instrumentalists who wished to become familiar with the West Gallery repertoire. It is very suitable for singers wishing to improve their sight-reading and part-holding.
The list below shows some of the the music that is to be sung. These are fairly straightforward pieces, to get us going. If possible we shall move on to more challenging material. Please download the music and practice it if you can. It is all free from copyright for amateur use.
Wind and bowed string instruments are needed to double the vocal lines. The music is not technically difficult, and is suitable for players of about AB Grade 4 or better who would welcome ensemble experience. If you need transposed or recleffed music, please let the course leader know well in advance.

Any suggestions for particular pieces, composers, or types of music that you would like to see included will be welcome.
