Hosted by the North East Early Music Forum, partcipants can come and see how reconstruction work and then have a go themselves at resonstructing parts following the conventions fo Tudor part-writing, The day will end by playing and singing through our work, so all singers and indoor instruments will be welcome (Pitch 440).
