Specialising in both secular and sacred music from c.1650-c.1790 and at the cutting-edge of the latest musicological research, they have performed a wide variety of repertoire, including the first modern performances of rediscovered baroque and early classical works by composers such as Innocenzo Fede, Sebastiano Bolis, Antonio Cossandi, Thomas Kingsley SJ, Miguel Ferreira, Antoine Selosse SJ, Niccolò Jommelli, and Giovanni Battista Costanzi. Concert activity has taken them to venues as far afield as Liverpool, Durham, Hereford, London and Rome. Their 2016 CD, The Cardinal King (Toccata Classics) was described by BBC Radio 3 Record Review as ‘consort singing second to none’. In this concert, their Cardiff debut, they mark the 400th anniversary of the birth of the Novara Ursuline nun and composer Isabella Leonarda in 1620, with a programme of virtuoso baroque vocal music.
