Course Details

The Art of the Medieval Sequence (9th-12th Centuries): From St. Gallen to Paris, from Notker to St. Victor

Faculty: Katarina Livljanić


In 2020, the medieval singing workshop with Katarina Livljanić will focus on the medieval sequence repertoire from the 9th-century pieces composed by Notker of St. Gallen to the 12th-century musical and poetic creations from the Abbey of St. Victor on the Parisian left bank. These magnificent chants, which combine highly refined poetic texts and elegant musical settings, will allow us not only to study the ways of transmitting knowledge and telling stories, but also to address many vocal issues related to this demanding musical repertoire which stands among the highest artistic achievements of medieval time.

Upon acceptance to the course, the students will be sent a number of sequences and they will choose a piece to prepare for our work during the course. The course is aimed at singers with secure vocal technique and some experience of square notation.

The piece for the audition should be a traditional or medieval monophonic song without accompaniment (no choirs, no chamber ensembles, no duos, etc.).
