Consort Iridiana - ‘An Imaginary Pilgrimage’

... I was invited to record this evenings performance by Consort Iridiana, an all-female choir founded by Jonathan Williams, at Wadham Chapel. It was a great event, combining readings from Fabri’s text and images from the same period interlaced with plainsong, early polyphony, medieval harp music and of course, female voices by Binchois, Gombert and Josquin. The second half comprised works by Italian nun composer Sulpitia Cesis and Poulenc’s jewel for female voices, the haunting Litanies à la vierge noire.

No photos this time due to the setting, but I hope to be able to add an excerpt of the second album to my showreel, copyright restrictions etc permitting.

Lots coming up, but it is also holiday season, so don't expect to hear much from me in July. Must dash!
