Visit this page to find out more about the University of Nottingham Music Society Mussoc and all of our awesome ensembles!
Collegium Musicum is Mussoc's Early Music Ensemble. We focus on a range music from the Renaissance and Baroque, offering the chance to perform on period instruments. The Ensemble consists of several small groups including recorders, viol consorts, mixed instrument group and choir that combine together in a concert once a term, so there is the option to be involved in as many or as few of these as you wish!
In addition, Collegium offers the opportunity to learn new instruments. We have a teacher who comes in weekly to guide the viol consorts, with a new beginners group starting each year (both recorders and viols have beginners and more advanced groups). There are also other period instruments that can be picked up in the mixed group or at your own steam.
Past repertoire includes:
When Daphne from Fair Phoebus did Fly (Anon.)
If My Complaints (Dowland)
Consort arrangements of Playford tunes
Recorders - Mondays 5:30pm-6:30pm, Chamber Music Room
Viols - Thursdays 5-6pm, Endsleigh Room
