Chalice Consort is not currently auditioning. Once we schedule auditions for 2012-2013 season, it will be posted here. Thank you for your interest!
Please prepare to sing William Byrd's "Mass in 4 Voices: Agnus Dei" (score: http://www1.cpdl.org/wiki/images/sheet/byrd-agn.pdf) in your voice part alone in original key. You will also be asked to sing a 16th Century Choral (in your own part) or Consort song of your choice, either sacred or secular. You are welcome to sing acapella or bring your own accompanist, otherwise accompaniment will be provided by Davitt himself if your piece requires it. There will also be some sight-reading in original notation and modern notation.
Some things that Davitt will listen for (not in any particular order) include:
- clarity of voice
- perfect intonation
- absence of diphthongs
- enunciation and rhetoric
- vocal range
- understanding style of 16th century choral music
Please email Rebekah to inquire about auditions or to get on a list for future auditions.
