Seasonal Songs and Forgotten Tunes

Seasonal Songs and Forgotten Tunes

Percy Manning Centenary Event

Singers and instrumentalists are invited to take part in a workshop exploring seasonal songs and folk tunes from the Oxfordshire collections of Percy Manning (1870-1917) 


Sunday 12th March 2017, 2 - 4pm

Denis Arnold Hall, Faculty of Music, St Aldate's

For many of these songs, Manning collected only the lyrics: their tunes are no longer known.

This workshop, led by musician and researcher Alice Little, will include a short presentation about the music in Manning’s collection and the opportunity to try composing and arranging new music for a selection of songs. 

Please bring your own instruments (or voice!); mainly by ear with minimal notation; lyrics and manuscript paper provided

Free, refreshments provided. To reserve your place email
