I Fagiolini - Rimanti in pace

Sing with internationally renowned vocal ensemble, I Fagiolini

Sing 'the best piece of Renaissance music you've never heard'!

 
Live rehearsals for this project end on Thursday 29th July, but if you'd still like to join, you can watch all of our session recordings on catch-up! The submission deadline is Monday 23rd August.

 

This is your chance to sing a rarely-performed piece of Renaissance music with one of the best British vocal ensembles, I Fagiolini. Founded and directed by Robert Hollingworth, I Fagiolini are internationally renowned for their imaginative, innovative performances of early music.

 

And we're so excited that they're joining us to work on our next project, 'Rimanti in pace' by Claudio Monteverdi!

 

This is an unusual opportunity for hundreds of Stay At Home Choir singers to take on a madrigal that is normally sung one to a part. 'Rimanti in pace' is an a cappella song about love, loss, and romance, which tells the story of an emotional farewell between lovers. Stay At Home Choir members will sing the role of the narrator, with I Fagiolini performing the lines sung by the lovers.

 

As usual, the project is open to everyone, with new members very welcome! We invite singers of all abilities and experience, wherever you are in the world, to try a style of music you might not have had the chance to sing before!

 

Our suggested contribution for this project is £16* but you can Pay-As-You-Feel, with a minimum contribution of £3*.

About the Stay At Home Choir

 

The Stay At Home Choir is an online music-making community. We run virtual choir projects which allow over 26,000 people from over 76 countries to sing with their favourite artists.

 

Being a part of your wonderful online singing community is SUCH a massive help and comfort. It is utterly amazing to be a (tiny!) part of this incredible effort and just wanted to say thank you for all that you do to ensure that we continue to sing together.

We provide detailed learning resources, online rehearsals, and one-off sessions with internationally acclaimed musicians, conductors, and composers. Our members become part of a friendly and thriving community, connecting with fellow music-lovers around the world.

 

The joy and enthusiasm is so infectious, it is wonderful! And living in a remote village, the choir gives me the chance to sing music in a choir that I otherwise wouldn't be able to.

We've collaborated with artists including Gareth Malone, The King's Singers, Christopher Tin, The Swingles, John Rutter, Sir Karl Jenkins, VOCES8, Marin Alsop, the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. 

 

For me being part of the SAHC community, meeting all those crazy, inspiring, wonderful and musical people from all over the world is something that I never had thought I would ever experience. And look where we are now!! What an achievement!! What a joy!! What a hell of a lot of fun and happiness.
