The focus of the consort is to connect early and contemporary music. It is comprised of recent graduates and current students from London’s world-renowned conservatoires, including The Royal Academy of Music and Guildhall School of Music and Drama: Anne Sutton (Soprano), Ben Finlay (Treble Viol), Emanuele Addis (Lute), Otto Hashmi (Recorder), Pablo Tejedor-Gutiérrez (Bass Viol).
The concert features music from the XVI-XVII century, specifically renaissance court and folk music. The programme embraces world-known historic figures from the British and Italian song tradition, including John Dowland, Claudio Monteverdi, and other lesser- known composers. It continues to the present day with a new composition written for the Londinium Consort by Italian living composer Antonino Abate: Shall I Compare Thee to a summer’s Day.
