BREMF Peace in Europe review

John Hancorn directed the BREMF Singers and Players in a programme of music from Britain, France and the Holy Roman Empire as the finale of the Brighton Early Music Festival 2018.

‘The highest point of this beautifully balanced concert was Purcell’s deeply tragic ‘Dido’s Lament’. Charlston’s delivery was so tender and Hancorn responded by allowing plenty of time for the drama while avoiding self-indulgence.’
