BREMF opens with a new concert format; a live ‘docu-concert’ with film and presentation and ending with a Q&A session. It includes the first public performance in modern times of Antoine Brumel’s complete set of Lamentations for Good Friday, recently discovered by Laurie Stras in a Florentine manuscript. Find out more, plus film & music clips here

The programme also features rare gems of renaissance convent music from another Florentine manuscript commissioned by nuns. An atmospheric and informative evening which also celebrates the launch of the Brumel CD.
