Upcoming Early Music Events:
September 22 Workshop in Greensboro
Pat Peterson will be offering a 2 1/2 hour workshop titled "Lhomme arme - The Armed Man in his Many Modes" for the Triad Early music Society in Greensboro, NC on Sunday September 22, 2019 from 1:30 - 4:00 pm.
From Pat about this workshop:
The Armed Man in his many modes
Judging from the number of composers who used L’homme armé as the basis for their compositions, this little ditty was one of the most popular tunes of the Renaissance, inspiring composers for nearly a century and a half. We will explore some of the seemingly infinite ways that composers twisted, turned, and transposed the simple tune to suit musical purposes, both sacred and secular, often with surprisingly beautiful (and sometimes humorous) results. Modes, canons, athletic and thrilling rhythms, all were in the tool chests of those who vied with each other over more than a century to create the most innovative and unusual settings of this simple and straightforward tune.
Registration and further information: Please email Susan Benson at firstname.lastname@example.org
The workshop is free for TEMS Members and $20 for non-members, $10 for high students.
