The Wordshop with Nicholas Cleobury

Composers set Words, Words are added to existing music, some Words are set many times by different composers. Musical responses to Words vary, with a wide variety of style and genre.
Why are Words set as they are?
This Workshop will go behind the scenes, as it were, with Composers and ask how and why they set the Words as they did.
Do we do justice to the Words when we sing? What are the musical tools that enhance their meaning?
With full participation – singing and contributing – we’ll look at how we can bring extra depth, meaning and colour to our singing.
