Contests, Competitions and the Harmony of Nations
From the latest Lufthansa Festival newsletter (issue 7) , news that that general ticket bookings are now open to the public. If you are planning to attend any events you may consider booking/purchasing tickets early to this popular festival.
“Johann Rosenmüller, though born in Germany, worked in Venice as one of the successors of Monteverdi. His vespers music is equally glorious to Monteverdi's own on a grand scale, and his smaller scale music displays some of the finest instrumental virtuosity and melodic fluidity of the 17th century. Pre-concert lecture (included in ticket price) and other related events (Chant Camp with Susan Hellauer of Anonymous 4) will be announced at a later date.”
Location: Immanuel Lutheran Church,122 East 88th Street, New York NY, US
“Chant Camp is a half day session of chant singing, structured around a number of carefully-chosen plainchant topics. Each topic presentation begins with a brief, informative, illustrated lecture, followed by plenty of group singing, to illustrate and permanently “set” the lesson. The workshop ends with a communal chant singing, combining elements of the day’s work, along with extensions and improvisations based on the day’s material.
(NL) Semibrevity "A Blog About Early Music Pioneers" Article: "Arnold Goldsbrough – Yorkshireman, organist, harpsichordist & conductor Part 1" (20 dec 2011)
From a recent blog post on the Semibrevity website.
“I mentioned in my post on Thurston Dart that I couldn’t find out much about Arnold Goldsbrough, who had been his teacher at the Royal College of Music 1938–9.
Since then I’ve tracked down Arnold’s son, now in his eighties, who has put me onto his dad’s surviving cronies and told me some stories. Through him, one way or another, I now have a great deal of previously unpublished material.
