CANTERBURY FESTIVAL 2014 – CHANT EVENTS

mildred
Saturday 18th October 10.00-11.45
MAGNIFICAT ALTERNATIM – a morning workshop
St Mildred’s Church, Church Lane, Canterbury, CT1 2PP
with Tim Roberts (organ) and Mother Nikola Proksch (chant)
This mini-workshop will prepare a Magnificat in the alternatim style, where the organ plays over some verses and the rest are chanted. We will use a 12th century English Magnificat Antiphon for St. Mildred to introduce the ‘Magnificat on the 1st Tone’ by Jean Titelouze, the 17th century French organist who worked at Rouen. Tim Roberts is a keyboard player with vast experience of performing repertoire of this era. He will begin the workshop with a talk about alternatim settings. Mother Nikola is Prioress of the Benedictine Foundation at Minster Abbey near Ramsgate and a knowledgeable practitioner of Gregorian Chant. She and Helen Nattrass have worked together on the transcription of the Antiphon for St. Mildred from its original source. Mother Nikola will coach us on the chant for the antiphon and the Magnificat verses. We hope to sing this as the central jewel in our 12 o’clock ‘Angelus’ Service.
The music is very approachable and beginners are welcome.
