New recording in preparation
Later this year, the Magdalena Consort will be undertaking a project of major importance - to record a CD of what is widely acknowledged to be some of the finest repertoire in all English sacred music: the consort verse anthems of Orlando Gibbons. They will be recorded for the first time in their entirety, accompanied by the world-renowned viol consort Fretwork with the early brass ensemble His Majestys Sagbutts and Cornetts.
Two concerts in the Lndon area are planned in the run-up to the recording sessions, with the recording itself (which is not public, of course) taking place in November:
See the Gibbons recording page for more general information.
We are actively fund-raising, and all help will be most gratefully received. Please see the supporting us page for details of how you can help.
