Musica Secreta present the London premiere of a major new discovery, the complete setting of the Lamentations of Jeremiah for Good Friday by Antoine Brumel. It has been known for many years in a much abbreviated form, but the complete work, found in a 16th-century manuscript by Musica Secreta’s co-director Laurie Stras, reveals a monumental and dramatic allegory of the Passion story. The programme also features rare gems of Lenten polyphony from a Florentine convent
