My Beloved is Mine – Music from the Song of Songs

Chorworks 10th Annual Summer School

This year – Chorworks’ 10th annual summer workshop – we explore a rich and varied repertory of music from across Europe. We will study, sing and hear luscious music by Palestrina, Clemens, Gombert, Lassus, Guerrero, Victoria, Isaac, L’Héritier, Franck, Schütz, Tomkins and others. The texts of all the pieces are drawn from the richly-worded biblical love song The Song of Songs, also known as Canticum Canticorum, or The Song of Solomon, or The Canticles.

In this our 10th anniversary year, our special faculty consists of members of the UK early music ensemble MAGNIFICAT:

Sally Dunkley, Amy Haworth, Benedict Hymas, William Dawes, Giles Underwood, with guest faculty James Kennerley and director Philip Cave

June 24-28th 2014
George Washington University, Washington, DC
