Sweet Ayres of Arcadia (BREMF)
Watch here: www.youtube.com/user/brightonemf
Wilton, near Salisbury, was home to Mary Herbert, sister to the Elizabethan poet, Sir Philip Sidney. The house and gardens provided the inspiration for his major pastoral poem, The Countess of Pembroke’s Arcadia. This programme, filmed in the ‘Arcadian’ pastoral landscape of the Sussex Downs and the house and gardens of St Mary’s House, Bramber, reflects on the beauty of nature as a metaphor for love, beauty and constancy.
MUSICKE IN THE AYRE

This year you can enjoy BREMF in the comfort of your own home.
Although we are not putting events behind a paywall, as we want to encourage curiosity from those who haven’t yet discovered what a fantastic range of music we cover, we are trialling V-tickets online. These voluntary tickets offer an easy way to donate in advance towards the considerable costs of making each of the 10 programmes on offer. We even offer a ‘season ticket’ for them all. Each programme is crafted for the screen and merges musical performance with film, images, animation and documentary presentation. Programmes will be online for a week, providing flexibility of viewing across the globe, while maintaining a festival feel with scheduled premieres on YouTube and Facebook.
Free- Donations welcome!
