Taking its name from the Blessed Virgin Mary, a focus of religious devotion in the sacred music of all ages, The Marian Consort is a young, dynamic and internationally-renowned early music vocal ensemble. This ‘astounding’ (The Herald) ensemble has given concerts throughout the UK and Europe, features regularly on BBC Radio 3, and is a former ‘Young Artist’ of The Brighton Early Music Festival. Settings in honour of the Virgin Mary by composers from the era of Henry VIII, including Cornysh, Ludford and Fayrfax, are juxtaposed with modern treatments of Marian texts by 20th and 21st century British composers. These contemporary compositions, many of which have been commissioned by and written for the singers of The Marian Consort, reflect the sensibilities of their 16th century counterparts, while at the same time exploring the possibilities offered by a modern vocal and harmonic idiom, speaking to the listener with the voice of the past, but in the language of our own time.
