Lunchtime Lecture and Demonstration on the Sadler partbooks and their music by Magnus Williamson with Julia Craig-McFeely, James Burke, and members of Stile Antico.

As a prelude to the evening concert in Fotheringhay, Dr Magnus Williamson - with members of the vocal ensemble, Stile Antico, Dr Julia Craig-McFeely and James Burke - will introduce and demonstrate the music of the Elizabethan ‘Sadler’ Partbooks and explain their local significance. These important manuscripts, copied by John Sadler who was the schoolmaster of Fotheringhay and Oundle from the 1540s to the 1570s, contain iconic masterpieces such as Thomas Tallis’s sublime settings of the Lamentations.

Sponsored by the Arts and Humanities Research Council as part of the Tudor Partbooks research project, this event will demonstrate how choirbooks, partbooks and other Renaissance music manuscripts were used in practice

Performance ends at approximately 2pm

Tickets £6 via Oundle International  Festival.
