'Has gained a reputation as Europe’s finest female a cappella quintet. For over 25 years the ensemble has captivated global audiences with their singing and performances in the black oral tradition – an early music form that is based on the ancient folklores and story telling of Africa and the Diaspora and which has impacted on the development of classical and more recent music genres such as blues and jazz.'



‘Vocal sextet specialising in the performance of renaissance polyphony ... Formed in March 2014 for a performance of Gesualdo’s Tenebrae Responsories for Maundy Thursday, the ensemble has since gone on to perform numerous concerts around the UK ...’


‘Established in 2012, the choir was formed to sing little-heard Renaissance works in London and further afield.’



'Acclaimed for their life-affirming virtuosity and irresistible charm, The King's Singers are in global demand. Their work – synonymous with the best in vocal ensemble performance – appeals to a vast international audience.'



‘Originally formed from a group of young participants on Lacock Courses, and still retaining a close association with these events, The Lacock Scholars are dedicated to small-ensemble, a capella consort singing of Renaissance polyphonic music and plainsong. We are inspired by our association with St Cuthbert's Church, Earl's Court, and explore the relationship between concert performance, liturgical observance, and the creation of unified, holistic experiences for our audiences.‘



‘Known for its engaging performances and imaginative programming, the group draws its members from amongst the very best young singers on the early music scene today. They normally sing one to a part (dependent on the repertoire) with smaller vocal forces allowing clarity of texture and subtlety and flexibility of interpretation that illuminate the music for performer and audience alike. The Marian Consort is also committed to inspiring a love of singing in others, and has led participatory workshops for a wide range of ages and abilities.’




‘Formed in 2000, with the aim of injecting new blood into the Welsh choir tradition. September 2013 saw a complete reinvention of the group as the choir became a honed and toned 8-piece vocal ensemble. The 8 men bring both a new sound and a more varied and eclectic repertoire to the mix, from Welsh folksongs and hymns to music theatre and opera, barbershop and swing to pop ...’



‘Founded in 1973 by their director, Peter Phillips. Through their recordings and concert performances, they have established themselves as the leading exponents of Renaissance sacred music throughout the world ... The Tallis Scholars continue to develop their exclusive sound, praised by reviewers for its supple clarity and tone, and to bring fresh interpretations to music by contemporary as well as past composers, such as Pärt, Tavener, Whitacre, Muhly and Jackson.‘



‘A close harmony group formed from the Choral Scholars of the Choir of King’s College. As Choral Scholars the singers follow the daily routine of Chapel services throughout term, as well as undertaking a busy concert and recording schedule in the vacations, often working with leading orchestras, most frequently the Academy of Ancient Music ... The King's Men, however, functions as separate from the main Choir, and is run entirely by the members of the group itself, all of whom are undergraduates at King's College, studying a range of different subjects. It performs regularly around Britain.’



‘Founded in 1963 ... For more than half a century, The Swingles have pushed the boundaries of vocal music. The seven young singers that make up today’s London-based group are driven by the same innovative spirit that has defined the five-time Grammy® winners since they first made waves in the 1960s. At a time when a cappella music is more popular than ever, The Swingles are recognised as masters of their craft.’



‘One of the most exciting and versatile vocal groups in the world. The multi award-winning ensemble fulfils an international annual touring schedule across Europe, the USA, Asia and Africa ... With a specialism in classical choral music, the group performs repertoire ranging from Renaissance polyphony to unique Jazz and Pop arrangements. The ensemble regularly commissions and collaborates with world-renowned contemporary composers ... VOCES8 is passionate about music education and is the flagship ensemble of the music charity VCM Foundation.’
