    London Calling!

    16.00-17.00

    Ascension Church, Plumstead, SE18 2SG

    As part of the Plumstead Peculiars concert series we present:

    A musical snapshot from London's proud multicultural history.

    Emily Baines - Recorders/Bagpipes
    Arngeir Hauksson - Theorbo/Baroque Guitar/Cittern

    Hear music from the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries by English composers influenced by their European colleagues, and by European musicians inspired by music from across the newly United Kingdom.

    During this period London became a melting pot for a huge number of musical styles as artists from across Europe flocked to be part of its buzzing cultural scene. Folk music from across the British Isles influenced composers from Italy, France and Germany who in turn brought their own homegrown styles to the musical feast.

    Featuring music by Locke, Purcell, Handel, Matteis, Geminiani, and others - performed on Recorders, Guitars, Theorbo, Cittern Bagpipes and Percussion.

    Performing Restoration Shakespeare

    2-6pm and 10-2pm

    21 New Globe Walk
    Bankside
    London
    SE1 9DT

    I will be working as a researcher on this exciting project which offers a unique opportunity for the public to engage with scholars, actors and musicians and learn more about the history of Shakespeare on stage.

    When London theatres reopened in 1660, Shakespeare’s plays were performed not as found in the First Folio but in specially commissioned adaptions. Now rarely staged, Restoration versions of Shakespeare – with added music, song and scenic effects – were extremely popular with audiences.

    In these open workshops, we will explore scenes from John Dryden and William Davenant’s adaptation of The Tempest, or The Enchanted Island, the most successful Shakespeare play in the Restoration era.

    This event is part of 'Performing Restoration Shakespeare', a three year project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and led by Queen's University Belfast.

    Recorder Workshop at Medieval Music in the Dales

    12.00-13.30

    Castle Bolton Meeting Room

    A practical performance workshop with Emily Baines of Blondel, exploring the rhythmic interplay found in much 15th-century music. Includes consort songs in a variety of styles, playing single-line repertoire as a group, ornamentation and articulation. Emily also offers pre-formed groups or soloists the opportunity to work on their own repertoire of the periods in a short informal masterclass at the end of the session. 

    suitable for players with some experience.

    Blondel: An Evening at the Palace

    2.30pm

    St Oswalds Parish Church,
    Castle Bolton, North Yorkshire, DL8

    Music from the fifteenth-century Cancioneros performed on Blondel’s signature line-up of three shawms, recorders and bagpipes. For this event they will be joined by Arngeir Hauksson (gittern and percussion).

    These Spanish court songbooks cover an astonishing variety of styles, idioms and origins, and range from chivalrous ballades and high-end art music to the rustic and downright lewd. Works by Spanish composers such as de la Torre, Enrique and Encina rub shoulders with some of the most widely distributed and best-loved repertoire of the age by van Ghizeghem, Josquin, Agricola, and Morton.
