About Consort 8:

Consort 8 began as a recorder ensemble of five players. The group has now expanded to include nine musicians – a countertenor, consorts of recorders and violas da gamba, lutes, theorbos and percussion. This is the only group of its kind in Sydney.

Based at the beautifully renovated St Paul’s Anglican Church, Burwood, Consort 8’s repertoire is extensive, ranging from the 13th century to contemporary music including works written by Australians commissioned by the ensemble. The wealth of instruments in the consort allows a variety of colours and sonorities, enhancing the performance of the music, some of which has never before been performed in Sydney.
