About The Event
KorMalta has launched Malta's first ever initiative aimed at providing guidance and professional training for choral singers and choir directors coming from different choirs, ensembles and backgrounds.
For the third Masterclass of this Choral Workshop, participants will be exploring Renaissance Polyphony of the 16th century: iconography, history, performance practice and tactus, style and setting of the text, and sources. The workshop will mainly focus on two motets /hymns for four voices by a great Renaissance composer as well as some of the Piae cantiones, very easy melodies for one and two voices (1582), to aid familiarization with ancient notations. Musicologist and choir-conductor SIlvia Perucchetti who is specialized in Renaissance polyphony will be leading the sessions.
