‘SPIRITED’

Spirited is the Gazette of The English Music Festival and this immaculately presented, clearly set and cleanly designed publication brings to a global audience insightful, thought-provoking and stimulating articles on all subjects pertaining to English music and works by British composers. Further essays on British art, landscape, literature and culture serve to place the composers in their cultural context and provide a deeper level of interest and enlightenment. Each issue also features CD and book reviews, interviews with artists appearing at the Festival, and news of the Festival’s burgeoning UK and European Concerts Series, as well as a wealth of information from the large number of societies, organisations and museums which are a part of the EMF’s ground-breaking British Composer Organisations Scheme. No aficionado of English music can afford to be without this cornucopia of riches.

LATEST NEWS

We are delighted to be returning to the glorious surroundings of St Mary’s Church and the Drill Hall in Horsham for our 2021 Autumn Festival, which will run from Friday 12 November until Sunday 14 November. The full programme is now published and can be viewed at this page; booking will open on 27 September.

Thank you to all who helped to make the Truro Concerts in July such a success — and, in particular, to Patrick and Jean Waller, without whom the day would not have been possible.

With the artists’ permission, some of the concerts at the 2021 May Festival were filmed, as were the talks; and we expect to have these ready for viewing on this website in October. We will be making a modest charge for access — this is to cover the costs of production and also to enable us to pay a royalty to the performers. More details will be available soon.
