The Fieri Consort was founded in 2012 and is made up of vibrant and skilled young ensemble singers based in London. The singers met studying on The Sixteen’s prestigious young artists programme, Genesis Sixteen and, in order to continue singing together and exploring similar musical interests, The Fieri Consort was established. They have regularly appeared on Radio 3.
Later that evening following the workshop FIERI CONSORT will perform in concert at 7.30 p.m.

Fieri Consort sing unaccompanied in a diverse range of styles, they are a seven strong, wonderfully talented vocal ensemble from London, some of you will also recognise Hannah Ely, who has joined the Broadstone Music Series previously, both as a soprano and as an accompanying pianist, Hannah is a originally a local girl and we are delighted welcome her back to the series.
– Out of the Shadows – takes us on a musical journey tracking the he transition from darkness to light: from the intense expressions of the murderous composer – Prince Carlo Gesualdo, the tortuous chromaticism of Lassus’ Sibylline Prophecies and chilling music from English composers including Gibbons’ ‘What is our life?’, a text written by Sir Walter Raleigh whilst awaiting execution in the Tower of London; to the searingly beautiful harmonies of 21st-century MacMillan, and the radiant compositions of William Byrd.
Included are some rare gems of the choral repertoire, with highlights such as a setting of the oldest known hymn, the greek text ‘Phos Hilaron’ (‘O Gladsome Light’), as well as American shape note-singing, a stark and wonderfully anachronistic style preserved nearly intact from early settlers and not often heard outside of the puritanical traditions of the deep south.
