Benslow Music School: Shakespeare on Singing: The Songs and How They Sounded

Location:
Benslow Music Trust, Benslow Ln, Hitchin SG4 9RB
Starts:
2pm

A lunchtime lecture recital by Gerald Place
In Shakespeare's plays and poems references to songs and singing are abundant and these songs vary from the crudest ballads to some of the most subtle and moving art-songs to be found anywhere.
Gerald Place, a former choral exhibitioner at Trinity College, Cambridge, draws together all these references to singing, illustrating the talk with songs accompanied by the viola da gamba.

The lecture recital begins at 2pm following lunch at 1pm (included in the in-person ticket price).

Tickets: £20 (including lunch at 13.00 GMT)
Livestream Tickets: £10
