Dunedin Consort

Winners of the 2008 Midem Baroque Award and the 2007 Gramophone Award for Best Baroque Vocal Album for their recording of Handel’s Dublin Messiah, Dunedin Consort, under the combined Artistic Direction of John Butt, Susan Hamilton and Philip Hobbs, performs throughout Scotland and Europe.

Under the musical direction of John Butt the group has consolidated its existing strength in the Baroque repertoire. Dunedin’s commitment to excellence in both live performances and recordings, coupled with the latest research in historical performance, is complemented by its strong belief in supporting new music. As part of its contemporary strand, Dunedin has commissioned and performed works by living composers – including William Sweeney, Errollyn Wallen, Peter Nelson and Sally Beamish – to complement and enhance the meaning of the old masterpieces.

Dunedin Consort has performed at music festivals in Canada, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Scotland and Spain – including the Edinburgh International Festival, Lufthansa Festival of Baroque Music in London, la Chaise Dieu (France), Thuringer Bachwoche and Händel-Festspiele Halle (Germany) – and broadcasts frequently on BBC Radio 3 and BBC Scotland.

Dunedin enjoys a close relationship with Linn Records, named ‘Label of the Year’ at the 2010 Gramophone Awards. In 2008 the Dunedin Consort released Bach’s Matthew Passion (Last performing version, c.1742) and Handel’s Acis & Galatea (Original cannons performing version, 1718). These have both received numerous plaudits, including the nomination for a Gramophone Award for Acis & Galatea. In 2010 Dunedin released Bach’s Mass in B Minor (Breitkopf & Härtel Edition, edited by Joshua Rifkin, 2006) to critical acclaim.

Since 2010, Dunedin also enjoys a close relationship with the Lammermuir Festival and Perth Concert Hall where it has presented all its major projects.

Dunedin Consort takes its name from Edinburgh’s castle (Eidyn’s Din) and, like the famous landmark, has great cultural significance in Scotland’s capital city.
