"Gloria in Excelsis Deo!"

Early Music-making Day for Singers and Instrumentalists

with Philip Thorby

Broughton St Mary’s Church, Edinburgh

 Saturday 17th November 2018, 10am - 4.30pm


A friendly day of early music-making for singers and players of recorders, viols and other strings, cornetti, sackbuts, curtals etc (at A440).  Tenor and bass viols and large-size recorders particularly welcome!  

 The Gloria is often the most colourful and varied movement in sixteenth and seventeenth-century settings of the Mass.  We will explore settings by two Venetian composers:  a 16-part setting by Andrea Gabrieli and a 24-part setting by Annibale Padovano.
