In this online choir workshop you will learn to sing along with a simple voice part from the Candlemas Nunc Dimittis and see the 15th-century manuscript from the Cistercian nunnery of Medingen where the music is preserved in the Bodleian Libraries

A Gregorian chant workshop based on the 15th-century Manual for the Provost of Medingen (Bodleian Libraries MS. Lat liturg. e. 18.)
This event is part of the Manuscripts from German-Speaking Lands Project, funded by The Polonsky Foundation. The Project is a three-year collaboration between the Bodleian Libraries in Oxford and the Herzog August Bibliothek in Wolfenbüttel to digitize nearly 600 medieval manuscripts. Thanks to St Edmund Hall for their talented singers and the use of the Crypt of St-Peter-in-the-East.
