Counterpint in the Cafe is a come-and-sing-and-drink event from the people who brought you Poloyphony Down the Pub. It's open to confident sight-singers who would like to sing 16th century a cappella choral music in a relaxed and informal setting; no audition, no rehearsal, no performance, just people making music over a glass of wine or bottle of beer. Pre-registration via the website is essential; particpants will need to download and print the scores in advance.
