Saturday and Sunday 21 and 22 May, St Endellion Hall
This very popular May madrigals and part-songs weekend, run by singer and musical director Helen Porter (see www.helenportermusic.co.uk) comes to St. Endellion for the first time. During the weekend we will sing a diverse range of madrigals and part songs in harmony ranging from the 1600s to the present day. The weekend attracts singers from all over Cornwall, many of whom belong to other choirs, and the standard is high. Practice recordings and scores are available for those who don’t read music and would like to do some preparatory work in advance of the weekend. The workshop will take place at St Endellion and/or Port Isaac (details tbc) and will end with a public performance at St Endellion Church on Sunday afternoon.
Participation will cost £50 per person. To book a place contact Ian Sandbrook on email@example.com or by phone 01840 214613

K’antu Early Music
Ensemble Friday 3 June, 7.30 pm, St Endellion Church
The early music ensemble K’antu returns with a programme to mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, exploring Shakespearian Songs and Dances evoking the spirit of Elizabethan and Jacobean England. With compositions by Robert Johnson, John Dowland, Thomas Morley, broadside ballads and folk tunes quoted in the Bard’s plays, their lively mix of music will appeal to Early, Folk, Classical and World Music fans alike.
Readings from Shakespeare will be provided by novelist, Patrick Gale.
Quotes: “These players are expert without being mannered, vivid without being simplistic, wholly alive to the expressive possibilities of Elizabethan and Jacobean music. I cannot recommend them highly enough.” (Michael Dobson, Professor of Shakespeare Studies) For more information about K’antu go to www.kantu-ensemble.co.uk Tickets £10, free for accompanied under 16s
