English Gothic fan-vaulted ceiling
BREMF Consort of Voices presents an early evening concert of music from the time of Henry VIII, before he broke with the Roman church and founded the Church of England... a sort of early Brexit!
Famed throughout Europe for their dazzling technique, English choirs from this pre-Reformation period could cover the widest compass known at the time, from deep basses to ethereal treble voices. The music is gloriously sonorous and as intricate as the fan vaulting of the Gothic cathedrals and chapels where it first resounded. This music speaks for all times and all people, whatever their beliefs. Come and experience a couple of hours of total immersion in exquisite sounds in one of Brighton’s most beautiful buildings.
