BREMF on 3

The Brighton Early Music Festival was featured live on Radio 3 today (on the Early Music Show) which gave a sampler of all the things I'm going to miss this year (again!). The theme of the festival is Dance, so that there is a semi-staged, danced version of Purcell's Fairy Queen, music by Hildegard of Bingen with dance, a concert by the BREMF choir featuring music from Plainchant to Spem in Alium. We are hoping to get to the festival next weekend, we'll probably miss the Saturday extravaganza, BREMF at White Night: Dance meets Utopia which seems to be free (!). But have our eye on   the Joglaresa concert, Dancing Girls of Granada. (Totally unrelated, but many years ago I wrote a part-song setting Helen Waddell's Dancing Girl poem, translated from early Latin.). Do visit the website,
