Russell Haswell completing Antoine Brumel's Et Ecce Terrae Motus

Aldeburgh Music have commissioned Russell Haswell to develop a piece based on the incomplete score Et Ecce Terrae Motus (Earthquake Mass). The 12 part piece was created by the Flemish composer Antoine Brumel who died in 1520, the only surviving copy of the work having rotted away. Part of the Faster Than Sound series, the event will also include vocal ensemble Exaudi. It takes place at Aldeburgh's Britten Studio in Snape, on 14 June.

In other Faster Than Sound news, nearly upon us is Richard Skelton's Aldeburgh performance, which takes place on 21 March. Skelton will be performing a new piece with an ensemble, based around the surrounding environment of Snape.
