Open the Book
Take a peek inside a 600+ year-old choir book and sing some of its music.
Newcastle University Library holds The Petre Gradual, a 370-page 14th-century manuscript.
Spend an afternoon with English church chant and sing from copies of the original manuscript.
All voices welcome. No prior experience necessary.
Led by Jonathan Adams, director of Silver Plainsong and of the Benedict Biscop Gregorian Choir.
This workshop, planned for Sage Gateshead for March 2020, was cancelled, but the possibility of running it in future still remains. Watch for fresh plans OR suggest a time and place to us.
