This year’s Brighton Early Music Festival focuses on the theme of passion – ‘in all its guises and moods’. The festival runs from 25 October to 10 November in various venues around Brighton, where over 20 events will take place.

Performances featuring as part of the main festival include: Red Priest with a programme of music from Handel; Emma Kirkby and Jacob Heringman in a performance entitled ‘The Image of Melancholy’ featuring the work of John Dowland; and L’Avventura, treating audiences to Portuguese and Brazilian love songs. The Marian Consort will also be presenting a concert-drama about the life of Italian composer (and alleged murderer) Carlo Gesualdo, and The BREMF Players will close the 2013 festival with J. S. Bach’s St John Passion.

Tickets are available to purchase from 4 September. To see the full details of this year’s festival, visit
