Village Carols Workshop

A Village Carols Workshop: Carols from South Yorkshire and Derbyshire

 Saturday 4 November 2017 from 2.00–5.00 pm (registration 1.30pm) at St Mary's Church Centre, Inverurie.  

The Village Carols Workshop will help participants learn the singing parts of eight favourite carols from village traditions in South Yorkshire and the Peak District. No special expertise is required, just enthusiasm for the carols and a willingness to join in. All the carols will be pitched to fall within the range of normal voices (as in the pubs where many of these traditions thrive).

As well as all singers, the invitation is also open to string or woodwind players. Instrumentalists will be able to learn to play the accompaniments in parts (string/woodwind), based on the manuscripts used by village carol bands. These have been specially prepared and edited by Ian Russell, and are taken from The Sheffield Book of Village Carols and The Derbyshire Book of Village Carols.
