Last Monday, visitors to the Royal Pavilion were treated to a performance by the Regency music duo Austentation. Austentation are vocalist Gillian Tunley and instrumentalist Frank Underwood. They perform music from the Georgian period, and include pieces from the personal collection of writer Jane Austen.
It was a fabulous performance, and a rare chance to hear the Music Room used for its original purpose. Gillian expressed some concern that her voice may test the stability of the chandeliers, but they remained intact and in place!
We have posted five clips of Austentation’s performance on You Tube. They are:
We hope you enjoy!
