the Consort playing in the Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh

The Consort has received funding from the Scottish Arts Council and launched an annual Scottish early music course for viol players. The Consort also seeks to promote the brilliant potential of modern music composed specifically for the viol: recent performances and commissions include 'Through the Mirror' and 'Dr Bernard Emery his Fantasie' by Rebecca Rowe, and Prelude, Scherzo and In Nomine by Leon Coates.

The Consort (Rebecca Rowe and Fiona Mackintosh on treble viols, Erica Schwarz, Ursula Schlapp and Ken Thomson on tenor viols, Vickie Hobson and Thomas Munck on bass viols, often perform with soprano Rosie Sweetnam, and join forces with other early muskc groups in larger works.
