“The MA in Ritual Chant and Song combines the academic and the practical really well. I became more proficient in chant and ritual song and honed my practical singing skills through the guidance of the fantastic tutors. I also learned a lot about the process involved in bringing the medieval sources to life through performance.” Femke currently teaches voice and sings with Cantoral and Sionna.
