In their final year of live performing and recording, the Orlando Consort presents a selection of the pieces they have especially enjoyed singing in the 35 years since the group was formed. The sequence features music from across Europe and ranges from the hypnotic beauty of 1,000-year-old polyphony, through the glories of the Medieval age, and on to majestic works of the early Renaissance. During the concert, Consort members will share a few reflections on their own musical journey together with a handful of ‘behind the scenes’ touring anecdotes!

Hauntingly and mellifluously sung by the four voices of the Orlando Consort, this music still sounds as flavoursome as it must have done 650 years ago.’ The Daily Telegraph


Please note there is a £1.50 administration fee per transaction
