Brighton Early Music Festival

Brighton Early Music Festival 2014The Brighton Early Music Festival has announced preliminary details of their 2014 festival. Running from 24 October to 9 November 2014 the festival will take as its them Cities: Musical centres and the journeys between them. The cities to be featured include Warsaw, Venice, Leipzig, Paris and Rome, and the programme will also include some extraordinary journeys and pilgrimages (plus a very long dance). The Sixteen will be performing a Polish programme and La Serenisssima open things with some Venetian festivities. As ever things are dependent on funding, so we must hope that all goes to plan.

For those who don't want to wait that long, the BREMF Consort of Voices, directed by Deborah Roberts, has a concert on 1 March 2014 at St Paul's Church, West Street, Brighton BN1 2RE. Entitled Salve! Gaude! it is a programme of large-scale music by Thomas Tallis and William Byrd, plus works from the Eton Choirbook by John Browne, William Cornysh and Robert Fayrfax, interspersed with secular songs from the period, ending with the glorious and monumental Vox Patris Caelestis by William Mundy.
