Music for the April session

Notes from Ann Stierli -


From the simple to the very complex, the canon dates back as early as 1250.  It is the foundation of Renaissance and Baroque compositions  and is still used by contemporary composers today (think Steve Reich).    These can be played on any instrument (or voice).   There will be one or two more but I will hand out music on Saturday.
