Join us for a very special Winter Warmer this January, the first of our concerts for 2024: a recital by
Brindley Sherratt
with pianist Sergei Rybyn
and Leon Bosch on double bass


We are very excited to welcome Brindley in this preview of his February Wigmore Hall recital. He is singing a gorgeous and rich programme of Schubert, Brahms, Mussorgsky and English songs (full programme here).


A few highlights from Brindley’s career: Sarastro Die Zauberflöte at Vienna State Opera, Dutch National Opera and Royal Opera House, Covent Garden; Claggart Billy Budd at the Aldeburgh and Glyndebourne Festivals, the BBC Proms, Arkel Pelléas et Mélisande in Frankfurt and Zurich Opera; Ochs Der Rosenkavalier at the Glyndebourne Festival; and Fiesco Simon Boccanegra at English National Opera.


Patron: Mark Padmore
Welcome to our song festival, a celebration of art-song which takes place in St. Anne’s Church in Lewes every July.
inspiring performers ~ beautiful music ~ thought-provoking programmes

Well done on putting on yet another truly fantastic festival, beautifully planned and full of very special moments.


Gorgeous programming, as usual - thought-provoking, mind-expanding, lovely! 


The programming & the performances are very special.


The best ever song festival – so many talents and so much inspiring music on display. It was all world class, but if I had to choose a favourite from the whole thing it would be my personal love of the emotional Finzi settings of Hardy in James Newby’s wonderfully varied and insightful evening – what a talent! Or Alison Rose’s “Illuminations” – another favourite piece but in a spectacular performance with the Corelli – and wasn’t the tenor good!  You should be very proud and pleased to bring all this to Lewes.


What a treat yesterday’s lunchtime concert was.  I can’t thank you enough.  Fabulous repertoire – most of which I didn’t know – beautifully played and sung.  


What a huge success I thought the Festival was. Really interesting programmes and such well-chosen, brilliant young players. It was all delightful and last night’s ‘Illuminations’ was absolutely electrifying.
