Brighton Early Music Festival (BREMF) has kept the faith these last 18 months via on-line offerings and outdoor Summer concerts, now BREMF is back with an indoor, in-person concert series from 20 to 24 October 2021 taking place in St George’s Church, Kemptown and St Martin’s Church, Lewes Road.

The programme includes Clare Norburn's latest concert-play, I Spie, which posits a dramatic spying past for composer John Dowlen, being presented by Norburn's ensemble The Telling (20/10/2021), the festival's own BREMF Consort of Voices in a programme of music by two composers who both died in 1521, Josquin and Fayrfax (21/10/2021), Canzona in French Baroque music by Rameau, Clérambault, Marais and Leclair (22/10/2021), the showcase of emerging talent, BREMF Live! (23/10/2021) and Joglaresa in medieval cantigas telling of weird and wonderful miracles performed by the Virgin Mary (24/10/2021).

For those who are not ready to return to live events yet (or who simply prefer to watch from the comfort of their own home), the Festival is also offering an online BREMF@home edition running 19 – 28 November. BREMF@home events will offer edited and enhanced highlights from BREMF’s Summer and Autumn seasons plus interviews with artists and other bonus content.

Full details from the BREMF website.
