SARUM CONSORT

The Sarum Consort was founded in 1992, making its concert début at the 1993 Salisbury Festival when painter Jane Mackay, Andrew Mackay’s sister, exhibited work inspired by Britten’s music, and a concert was given to illustrate the artist’s inspiration. The Consort’s recordings have enjoyed critical acclaim, the first Peter Philips disc being described as ‘magical’ on BBC Radio 3’s Record Review and in BBC Music Magazine being given five stars for performance. The choir celebrated its tenth anniversary by making its London début in St John’s, Smith Square in October 2002 with Rachmaninov’s Vespers and Philip Moore’s Canticle of Light, commissioned for the occasion. The Church Times reviewer Roderic Dunnett, for whom the Consort ‘proved itself an easy match for almost any London choir’, noted that the conductor ‘marshalled and balanced his well-prepared Sarum forces with sensitivity, shrewdness, and a glorious feel for the dance’.
