Following our recent return to near-normal rehearsal conditions,
there will now be a rare opportunity to hear Brighton Consort perform a short informal concert.
Brighton Consort is Brighton's oldest choral early music ensemble and this year 2021 we are celebrating our 50th anniversary.
The performance on 11th August will focus on Renaissance and Tudor polyphony by William Byrd, Palestrina, Thomas Tallis and Clemens non Papa.
While the music iincludes several settings of biblical texts, two of the pieces - Ego Flos Campi and Vidi Speciosam - celebrate the beauty of nature and the coming of spring.
Byrd's Laudibus in Sanctus is a huge explosion of joy, celebrating the playing of music and dance. All of the music is of stunning beauty and we hope that this concert will
be a great celebration of the Brighton Consort's return to performance. The concert will include the following works:
William Byrd: Laudibus in Sanctis
William Byrd: Quomodo Cantabimus
William Byrd: Tristitia et Anxietas
Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina: Dum Complerentur
Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina: Tu es Petrus
Clemens non Papa: Ego Flos Campi
Thomas Tallis: Salvator Mundi
Tomas Luis da Victoria: Vidi Speciosam
The free performance will be on Wednesday 11th August 2021 at 8pm in St George's Church, St George's Rd, Kemptown, Brighton BN2 1ED.
Buses 1, 1a, 7, 23, 271 and 272 stop at nearby Royal Sussex County Hospital, and routes 12, 12A, 14, 14A, 27, 271 and 272 stop at Burlington St on Marine Drive.

We hope to see you there. The performance is free, but voluntary donations will be requested, to cover expenses.
