Baroque ‘n’ Roll

Red Priest

Red Priest

A loosely-knit community of musicians in Lewes and the surrounding area are united in their interest in playing works from the vast wealth of instrumental and vocal music that predates the traditional Classical repertoire. Red Priest, one of the leading ensembles of this Early Music movement, is based in our town as are many players from the acclaimed Orchestra of the Age of The Enlightenment, who regularly play and record at Glyndebourne and across Europe. Lewes also has the Baroque and Roll String Orchestra, which is open to any young people who want to experience playing this early music. In addition, some of the finest early music keyboard instruments are made in a workshop in the Cliffe.
