Plainchant Workshop Presentation

2016.09.17 Residência Cisterciense (2)

Photo from the brief presentation of the Plainchant Workshop during the last day of the Residência Cisterciense S. Bento de Cástris. I was singing, together with Octávio Martins, who directed the choral part of the workshop, a Magnificat in alternatim, a performance technique used for singing psalms and hymns, which divided the text in odd vs. even verses.

    It would have been an interesting workshop to sit in on! I used to sing in a choral choir in music college, as well as a few other choirs (Madrigal, Classic, and Black Gospel), and have very good memories of those times. I still sing, and give vocal coaching lessons, but my main focus these days is writing novels… both are expressions of creativity!

    1. Hi, thanks Trinity for your kind words! Indeed, singing is great for everyone and these workshops I have been doing are intended to just work on the chant repertoire… it is very easy to sing and people can express it very well. All best for your writing
