Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Marian Consort originally made its name with the music of the Renaissance. But the group has also worked regularly with living composers for a number of years. This programme of contemporary Marian anthems – many of them commissioned by the ensemble – celebrates a living, developing tradition where the new is always informed by the old, casting fresh, vital light on these ancient words. The Marian Consort is a young, dynamic and internationally-renowned early music vocal ensemble, recognised for its freshness of approach and innovative presentation of a broad range of repertoire. “Exquisite… the ensemble sings with eloquence and expressive finesse.” (The Sunday Times) The Marian Consort originally made its name with the music of the Renaissance.
