Medieval Crusades Songs Pack
I've attached a copy of the Medieval Crusade Songs Pack (PDF) that I have put together over the Christmas holidays. It contains the lyrics and notation for all the songs that we will be looking at this term. The only exception to this are the Occitan songs, one of which will be performed as spoken word, and the other we are still working on! I'll endeavour to get some copies of this to use in the workshops.
A couple of things to note:
- Please feel free to come to the Medieval Seminar Serieswith musicologist Emma Dillon on 22nd January.
- We are trying to schedule a performance of the songs we are working on for Sat 8th March. We would like this to be a relaxed, informal presentation for those involved in the project and open to guests.
- We will hopefully be working with local musician Jude Rees on some of the songs. Here's her website. (http://www.judereesmusician.co.uk/)
Finally, in the pack there is a provisional timetable of rehearsals and other significant dates. These dates are subject to changes, and specific times for the rehearsals will usually the week before the rehearsal.
