St Matthew Passion


Brighton Philharmonic Orchestra | Dome Concert Hall, Brighton
Conducted by Robert Howarth

With Brighton Philharmonic Orchestra, a stellar cast of solo singers and the brilliant conductor and harpsichordist Robert Howarth, this is an event in the calendar not to be missed.

The searing story of Christ’s betrayal, Last Supper, arrest and death is wrapped in some of Bach’s greatest and most moving music: it can be noble, passionate, tragic, intimate and ultimately meditative. It’s tour de force for every performer onstage.

BFC Autumn Concert : Beyond The Sea

Gabrieli, Mealor

All Saints Church, Hove
Conducted by James Morgan

Stunning Venetian polychoral music by Andrea and Giovanni Gabrieli rubs shoulders with The Farthest Shore, a dramatic oratorio written by contemporary composer Paul Mealor, who rocketed to fame when his music was performed at the Royal Wedding. All of these will make full use of the cavernous space of All Saint’s Church, Hove, with singers and ensembles in various parts of the building, just as they did in St. Mark’s in Renaissance Venice.
