Roland Bryce: Carmina ex Ruinas
Roland Bryce is a composer and a music technology tutor at the East Sussex Academy of Music.
His new work, Carmina ex Ruinas, (Songs from the ruins) is a set of songs, plus narration, inspired by the stones from the ruins of Priory of Saint Pancras in Lewes.
The songs feature transcribed phrases of Gregorian chant with a blend of functional harmony and modern textures including some synthesizer timbres that support the vocals.
The concert will be in St John the Baptist Church, Southover High Street – built in the C12 as a hospice for the Priory which provided hospitality for travellers and the poor.
Venue: St John the Baptist Church (Trinity Church, Southover), Southover High St, Lewes BN7 1JH
Entry: £10, tickets on the door
