    In what has become a regular fixture, Joseph Wicks returns to the organ bench to give an uplifting recital on Boxgrove Priory’s extremely beautiful 2-manual Hill organ.

    Featuring music from the renaissance, baroque and 20th century periods of composition from Germany, France and England, a real variety of music is on offer, and hopefully will demonstrate just what can be done with a small, but perfectly formed instrument.

    Fantazia of foure parts – Gibbons

    Prelude & Fugue in F minor – Dupré

    Boxgrove Choral Festival: Renaissance Late

    20:00

    Boxgrove Priory, Church Lane, Boxgrove, Chichester PO18 0EE

    Boxgrove Priory’s acoustics are particularly good for renaissance polyphony. Last time, we sang a masterpiece from England. This time, it’s the turn of the Spanish school, and what a wealth of exquisite music there is to choose from!

    This performance is the first to use a brand new critical edition of the Victoria by Italian scholar Enrico Correggia.

    This event is generously supported by Angel Early Music, with our grateful thanks.

    Lamentations for Holy Saturday – Lobo

    Tenebrae Responsories for Holy Saturday – Victoria
