ECSE & MSB

The English Cornett and Sackbut Ensemble is a virtuoso period instrument ensemble at the forefront of the early music scene.

ECSE have performed in the UK and abroad including the Bath International Festival, Spitalfields Festival, La Folle Journée, Grundton D, International Izmir Festival and The Three Choirs Festival (The Choir of Royal Holloway) as well as at London's Wigmore Hall, St John's Smith Square, and Purcell Room. As well as touring France, Israel and Canada, 2011 saw ECSE visit Turkey and Florence with the renowned chamber choir I Fagiolini and also performed music from Monteverdi Selva Morale with Cantus Cölln in a concert celebrating the re-opening of the wonderful gothic cathedral in Trier, Germany.

ECSE have made numerous recordings since its début CD, ACCENDO, including instrumental and collaborative CDs with some of the UK's most talented chamber choirs such as The Choir of Royal Holloway, The Armonico Consort (Emma Kirkby), Musica Contexta, Southern Sinfonia and I Fagiolini. Most notably, ECSE were a featured ensemble on the world première recording of the 40-part mass Ecco si beato giorno by Alessandro Striggio with I Fagiolini which was awarded both a GRAMOPHONE AWARD and the DIAPASON D’OR (disc of the year, France) in the 2011 awards. For more details, visit the ECSE website.

The Monteverdi String Band is an outstanding ensemble of specialists in the rich and intriguing string repertoire of the early 17th century. The collective expertise of the band's members in style and ornamentation has, for a decade, brought exhilaration to performances ranging from intimate madrigals to grand polychoral celebrations.

They have enjoyed many professional collaborations, including the Birmingham Opera Company’s remarkable Monteverdi cycle with Graham Vick, and they are especially pleased to work with long-time colleagues, the English Cornett and Sackbut Ensemble. This year's projects include further performances of Monteverdi Vespers, the Florentine Intermedii (at the Brighton Early Music Festival), and chamber concerts of madrigals and virtuoso instrumental music.
