We are thrilled to announce the imminent release of our latest CD with ABC Classics, Royal Consorts. Featuring absolutely gorgeous music from 17th century England, the album is due for release on October 16.
Our next concert sees us welcome special guest artists Anna Sandstrom (soprano) and Matthew Manchester (cornetto) for our final concert at the Melbourne Recital Centre for 2015. In a programme that explores the dichotomy early 17th century Italy, including the emotionally devout music of one of Italy’s rarely heard composers, Nicolo Corradini, and the music of Barbara Strozzi, one of Venice’s most famous courtesans, don’t miss this beautiful and unusual programme.
