It's not too late!!

Greetings from Lady Erlandr Nordskald, Director of the Known World Choir at Pennsic.

This year's Known World Choir program features the music of Josquin Des Prez, in honor of the 555th year of his birth. We will be rehearsing a few of the famous Mass movements, L'Homme, his Frottola's, a 6 part Ave Maria, and other favorites.

Those interested in singing with the Choir should be able to read music or at least fake it pretty well. A familiarity with Renaissance Vocal music is a must, even if it's only something that you only dreamed about doing.

All singers need to register and receive music prior to coming to Pennsic and may do so by contacting Erlan. If there is room for more voices at war, then we will accept them gladly, especially if you're a tenor.

In service,
