All aboard the gospel train – residential weekend in Salisbury

15 Sep 2023—17 Sep 2023

Residential

Sarum College
Gospel church under dark clouds in countryside

A fabulous weekend of gospel singing for people of all faiths and none. No modern R&B or evangelical sing-alongs, but back to the earthy basics of purely vocal gospel harmony singing. Immerse yourself in the roots of the blues: southern gospel, Jubilee quartets, and spirituals.

 

You don’t have to be religious to enjoy the uplifting, passionate, exciting sounds of gospel music. In this liberating workshop you will sing African-American gospel songs from the 1920s and 1930s; spirituals from even earlier; and gospel from South Africa – all in glorious unaccompanied harmony (not an instrument or backing track in sight).
