Tonus Peregrinus was founded by the composer Antony Pitts in 1990, during his studies with Edward Higginbottom at New College, Oxford, and today is an established ensemble in Britain and abroad with a significant discography. At the core of Tonus Peregrinus are a dozen singers who combine their diverse expertise to interpret a repertoire ranging from the end of the Dark Ages to scores where the ink is still wet; together they have achieved major successes in both new music and early music, including a Cannes Classical Award for the ensemble’s chart-topping début release of Arvo Pärt’s Passio, and The Naxos Book of Carols—circulated to millions of homes in Britain and available as a printed carol-book from Faber Music (www.naxoscarols.com).
