Blackdowns Early Music Projects

Established in 2004, Blackdowns Early Music Projects were principally conceived  to draw together groups of experienced singers to work under the expert guidance of specialist music directors on programmes of infrequently performed early music (mostly pre 1720).   Singers are invited from all over Europe and the UK to spend 3 or 4 days working together on music that is usually performed in a suitable venue in or around the Blackdown Hills, bridging the Somerset / Devon borders. Frequently the music is accompanied by  specialist early music instrumentalists.  The resulting choral concerts  have become a mainstream event in the calendar for anyone who loves renaissance or baroque vocal music.
