Brighton Early Music Festival present two concerts to celebrate the double anniversary of the composer Cipriano de Rore - possibly the 500th anniversary of his birth, as well as the 550th anniversary of his death.

Both concerts are at St Paul's Church, West Street, Brighton.

Saturday 6 June, 6pm

Rore dedicated his Missa Praeter rerum seriem to Duke Ercole II of Ferrara (pictured here as Hercules).  The concert will also include motets by Rore and Gregorian chant for the feast of Corpus Christi.
