      CHANT CAMP - NOVEMBER 14

      San Francisco Renaissance Voices is delighted to once again host
      Anonymous 4’s Susan Hellauer and Marsha Genensky for another full-day
      session of Chant Camp, this time featuring Medieval Sarum Chant.

      This workshop presents a full day session of chant singing,
      structured around a number of carefully-chosen plainchant topics. The
      Rite or Use of Sarum (the Latin name for Salisbury) was the Britain's
      own variation of the Roman liturgy throughout the Middle Ages until the
      Reformation. While many Sarum chants were also sung elsewhere in
      Christian Europe, Sarum Chant is a distinct and distinctive dialect,
      and includes many compositions unique to the British Isles.

      You'll learn and sing several of these compositions from votive
      masses to the Virgin Mary. When fans ask members of Anonymous 4 why we
      sing so many works in honor of Mary, we tell them: "because she got the
      best music!"

      Each topic presentation will begin with a brief, informative,
      illustrated lecture, followed by plenty of group singing, to illustrate
      and permanently “set” the lesson. The day’s workshop ends with a
      communal chant singing, combining elements of the day’s work, along
      with extensions and improvisations based on the day’s material.

      This session contains all new material, so if you attended the April
      2009 Camp you will still find something new to chant about!
      Pre-registration is required and class size is limited so early
      registration is recommended. Registration cost includes workshop, all
      materials and hospitality.  Register at:  http://www.SFRV.org

      WHAT:  Chant Camp with Anonymous 4's Susan Hellauer and Marsha Genensky
      WHEN:  9 AM - 4 PM, Saturday, November 14
      WHERE:  Seventh Avenue Presbyterian Church, 1329 Seventh Avenue, San Francisco
      COST:  $60 per individual
