Suggested Repertoire

You can bring items from the lutesong and viol consort song repertoire, as in Valtice we are able to collaborate with lute and viol classes, or arias with continuo, where we can develop embellishment to enhance the text. We’ll work daily on improving your vocal health and beauty.
