Sydney’s unique recorder ensemble with a core of 5 players, Consort 8 works extensively with a variety of instrumentalists and singers specialising in early music.
The full consort produces a range of sonorities from the smallest bird-like sopranino to the rich organ-like sounds of the contra bass.
The group’s repertoire is extensive, ranging from the 13th century to contemporary music including works written by young Australians commissioned by the ensemble.
