BREMF Consort of Voices presents an early evening concert of music from pre – Reformation England. Famed throughout Europe for their dazzling technique, English choirs from the early 16th century 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.
