PIVA - The Renaissance Collective

Real Roots!

Weekend Residential Renaissance Music Course with PIVA

Real Roots!

We’re delighted to be welcoming PIVA back to Halsway for their 8th course exploring the Real Roots! of European traditional and renaissance music, both the music and the instruments. During this enjoyable and fascinating course, you will discover the world of late 16th century popular music as heard in both court and country. The focus of the course will be playing 4 or 5 part harmony but it doesn’t matter if you are new to this music or an experienced renaissance specialist; sessions will be adapted to suit all levels.

PIVA has decided, due to popular demand, that they will take a pause on their ‘Grand Tour’ of European roots music – and they will be staying over in Italy, as well as looking at how Italian music influenced English composers of the time.

PIVA will also play a public gig on the Saturday evening.

The core of the programme will consist of playing in 4 and 5 part harmony in a mixture of large and small ensembles, as well as a range of other options,
