I see there are two Brian part songs being given at the English Music Festival in Dorchester on Sunday 29th May in the 19.00 concert by the City of London Choir: "Shall I Compare Thee to a Summer's Day" and "Blow, Blow Thou Winter Wind".

Yesterday was the day Brian's The Vision of Cleopatra was to be performed in Bristol.  Did anyone go and can update us about the piece and performance?

Did anyone here manage to attend the premiere of Brian/Pickard Vision of Cleopatra or find a review of it?

I'm listening to a fantastic "introductory talk" on Brian's music from the HB Society's website. Why haven't I heard this before? Plenty of music excerpts included too.

It's excellent. The late Malcolm MacDonald did a wonderful job, as usual.
