Italian Madrigal Weekend - Greg Skidmore Fri 16 Nov - Sun 18 Nov

  • Arts

Last year was Monteverdi year, so this year why not explore more glorious music from the late Renaissance by composers such as Luca Marenzio, Carlo Gesualdo, and Sigismundo D’India? We will also investigate secular music by composers better known for their sacred compositions – such as Palestrina and Orlande de Lassus. We might throw in some Monteverdi too, just for fun!

Fully inclusive residential single room £280; shared £240 per person; Non-residential option £200 - includes suppers, lunches and all refreshments- Excludes B&B.
