‘the sheer beauty of the group’s sound in lofty high-Renaissance style pieces is spellbinding. The fine-grained texture of solo voices allows us to savour the amazing harmonic pungency of English sacred music *****
Some of the finest young singers in Britain sing divine sacred music and captivating folksong.
Individual members also sing with Tenebrae, The Sixteen, Polyphony and Britten Sinfonia Voices.
The ensemble is in increasing demand, performing in Germany, France, Poland, The Netherlands, Monaco,
