Choristers on BBC3

This week our Sixth Form girl choristers recorded and performed on this fantastic production by The Gesualdo Six, which also featured on BBC Radio 3. Beautiful!

The Gesualdo Six is a vocal consort comprised of some of the UK’s finest young consort singers, directed by Owain Park. Formed in March 2014 for a performance of Gesualdo’s Tenebrae Responsories for Maundy Thursday in the chapel of Trinity College, Cambridge, the group went on to give over 150 performances around the United Kingdom and abroad in its first five years. During this time, The Gesualdo Six further strengthened a passion for ensemble singing that for many of them stemmed from formative years as choristers in churches and cathedrals around the country. The Gesualdo Six regularly performs at festivals around Europe, and will tour Australia, Canada, Mexico and the USA in 2020. Some of the performances have sadly been cancelled due to the COVID19 pandemic. Find out more about what they’re getting up to on their website: https://www.thegesualdosix.co.uk/
