'Ingeniously programmed and impeccably delivered, with that undefinable excitement that comes from a
group of musicians working absolutely as one' 
– Gramophone Magazine
We welcome The Gesualdo Six back to the Granary with a programme of Renaissance pieces celebrating nature and love; lyrical melodies by Ferrabosco and Gibbons interspersed with new music and skilful arrangements of traditional British folk songs. Praised for their imaginative programming and impeccable blend, The Gesualdo Six formed in 2014 for a performance of Gesualdo’s Tenebrae Responsories in Cambridge. They now have an international profile, performing at major festivals across the UK, Europe, North America and Australia. Notable highlights include a concert as part of the distinguished Deutschlandradio Debut Series, a Wigmore Hall debut and tour of the USA in 2021, and collaborations with the Brodsky Quartet, London Mozart Players, Luxmuralis, William Barton and Matilda Lloyd.
The group released their debut recording - English Motets - on Hyperion Records in early 2018 to critical acclaim. Other releases include a festive album of Christmas favourites, Josquin’s Legacy and Carlo Gesualdo’s Tenebrae Responsories for Maundy Thursday.
