Deborah Roberts and Laurie Stras directors Presented by Laurie Stras BREMF opens with a new way of exploring the making of music; a live ‘docu-concert’ which includes the first public performance in modern times of Antoine Brumel’s complete set of Lamentations for Good Friday, recently identified by Laurie Stras in a Florentine manuscript. The programme also features other rare gems of renaissance convent music from a Florentine manuscript by the same copyist, but this time clearly commissioned by nuns; and a chance to interact with copies of pieces from this convent choirbook.
