Lied? Mélodie? Canzona? A weekend of German, French and Italian art songs.
How do composers illuminate text and make a real marriage – or a very civil partnership – between words and music? We will make foreign language less foreign by exploring the meaning of the text itself and considering how words and music interact. Guaranteed enlightenment – guaranteed fun!

Bring four pieces; suggestions can be provided on request.


All courses are held at Jackdaws in the village of Great Elm, a small village to the west of Frome in Somerset, roughly 30 minutes drive from Bath. Frome Train station is roughly 2.5 miles from Jackdaws with direct trains from Bristol, Bath, Cardiff and London.
