The Earth Resounds: London

23 September 2020 7.30pm Kings Place Tickets: £19.50 - 49.50(Booking Fees Apply)

Simulating the phenomenon of trembling land, Brumel’s astonishing Earthquake Mass creates textures that literally seem to shake. Josquin’s O virgo prudentissima evokes images of craggy rocks and dark whirlwinds, while Lassus’s Aurora lucis rutilat (‘Dawn reddens with light’) creates a truly spectacular display of choral fireworks.
