Consortium5 (Oonagh Lee, Kathryn Corrigan, Gail Macleod, Roselyn Maynard, Emily Bloom)
Making their Resonus debut is the unique and innovative recorder consort Consortium5.

Presenting a diverse and compelling programme of consort music from the English Renaissance period, the group chart the early development of instrumental music in England, with a plethora of both well and lesser-known composers from the period including such luminaries as Robert Parsons, William Byrd, John Dowland & Christopher Tye alongside Edward Blankes, Jerome Bassano, William Brade and Antony Holborne among many others.

This fascinating programme is performed on the group’s exquisite matching set of ten Bassano recorders by Adriana Breukink.

'It is a set of ten Bassano recorders made by Adriano Breukink which Consortium5 use to good effect in this recording. [...] here the use of 4- and 8-foot pitch and the consort’s perfectly matched but varied articulation mean that the sound never becomes dull.'

'Performing on a set of 10 Renaissance recorders, this release finds them moving among the In Nomines of Byrd and Tye, the dances of Ferrabosco and Dowland, the madrigalian fantasias of Coperario and Ward and more besides. Think of a solitary organist producing sounds of the sweetest, mellowest delicacy and you’ll get the measure of this beautiful recording.'

'The variety of texture that they produce makes this a compelling recording. And the music is gloriously varied. [...] Recommended, particularly for recorder haters!'
