The Gesualdo Six

‘Ingeniously programmed and impeccably delivered, with that undefinable excitement that comes from a group of musicians working absolutely as one’ – Gramophone

The Gesualdo Six is an award-winning British vocal ensemble comprising some of the UK’s finest consort singers and directed by Owain Park. Praised for imaginative programming and impeccable blend, the ensemble formed in 2014 for a performance of Gesualdo’s Tenebrae Responsories in Cambridge and has gone on to perform at numerous major festivals across the UK, Europe, North America, Colombia, Australia and New Zealand.

Notable highlights include a concert in the distinguished Deutschlandradio Debut Series, performances in renowned venues including Wigmore Hall (London), Miller Theatre (New York) and the Sydney Opera House, and a BBC Proms debut in 2023. The ensemble has collaborated with Fretwork, the Brodsky Quartet and Matilda Lloyd, and tours a work of concert-theatre titled ‘Secret Byrd’ with director Bill Barclay.

The Gesualdo Six is committed to music education, regularly hosting workshops for young musicians and composers. The ensemble has curated two composition competitions, with the most recent edition drawing entries from over 300 composers around the world. The group recently commissioned new works from Shruthi Rajasekar and Joanna Marsh, alongside coronasolfège for 6 by Héloïse Werner.

The ensemble has harnessed the power of social media to make classical music accessible to millions worldwide, creating captivating videos in beautiful locations while on tour. The group released its debut recording English Motets on Hyperion in 2018 to critical acclaim. This has been followed by six further albums (Christmas, Fading, Josquin’s legacy, Gesualdo’s Tenebrae Responsories for Maundy Thursday, Lux aeterna and William Byrd’s Mass for five voices) and most recently Morning star.
