March 2004: In the beginning there was a workshop….
All Saints' Church, Culmstock EX15 3JD
28 March 2004 7:00pm
Just a one day workshop with a free performance at the end of the day for anyone who cared to listen! This was intended to be a one off opportunity for enthusiastic local singers to experience singing Renaissance music under the direction of JanJoost van Elburg. He was MD of the Renaissance Singers of London and Reading Bach Choir at the time, travelling weekly for their rehearsals (Monday and Tuesday evenings) from Amsterdam to the UK. He was also ( and remains) director of the weekend project choir The Bartholomew Consort, based in Oxford.
