Blackdown Early Music Projects (BEMP) presents Newe Vialles: "Good Againe"


The programme features sumptuous lyra viol music by the soldier turned composer Tobias Hume, swift divisions by the master of English viol-playing Christopher Simpson, and delicate dance duos by John Jenkins, whose career spanned almost the whole of the century, from the time of Charles I until well into the Restoration. We are delighted that this time, Catherine Bass will join us for a set of lute and continuo songs, and we will end the recital with a sonata by Benjamin Hely, a little-known English composer and violist from the end of the century, whose music shows definite hints of the high baroque. This will be our first public performance since the beginning of the pandemic and we hope that, as Hume titles one of his pieces, things will soon indeed be “good againe”.

The BEMP Third Thursday series of concerts is being promoted in partnership with the Friends of All Saints’ Church, Culmstock. The concerts will support two great causes, the continued livelihoods of the brilliant musicians invited to perform in the delightful acoustic of All Saints’, and after professional costs are met, the majority of remaining proceeds will be donated toward the development and improvement of the church for wider community access.

Statement from BEMP:
We have eight events in the pipeline for 2021, starting on May 20 and continuing through the year on the Third Thursday of each month. Please be aware that any changes to prevailing pandemic restrictions will determine the exact details. Travel restrictions and social distancing regulations may restrict audience size for the first few recitals.
