Wykeham Consort is an ensemble of four musicians who enjoy sharing the music of Renaissance Europe. Their concerts range from anonymous Spanish villancicos with simple expressions of human emotion to the elegant poetry of French chansons and lively English country dances. Wykeham Consort strives to communicate the composer's intention and our experience of it in both instrumental compositions and sung texts. They find this music accessible, very human and genuinely open. It is filled with the same passion, joy, sorrow and delight that animate us all today.
Members of the consort are Matilda Giampietro, Soprano Voice, Recorders and Percussion, Sarah Jane Chelminski, Recorders, Erica Warnock, Tenor and Bass Viols, and Andy LaFreniere, Guitar. Sometimes they are joined by percussionist John Marshall. The members of Wykeham Consort began performing together as an ensemble in the spring of 2010.
