Lynda Sayce (vihuela)

Lynda Sayce is one of Britain’s leading lutenists, with more than 100 recordings to her name. She is principal lutenist of La Serenissima, The King’s Consort and Ex Cathedra, and has collaborated with leading historically informed ensembles such as Le Concert d’Astrée, Les Talens Lyriques and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. She also directs her own ensemble, the lute quartet Chordophony.

She works regularly with modern-instrument groups, especially opera companies, and was invited by Sir Simon Rattle to play continuo for the Berlin Philharmonic’s epic staging of Bach’s St Matthew Passion, which toured Europe and the USA. Also active as a scholar and researcher, Lynda holds a PhD on the history of the theorbo, which is shortly to be published. She teaches lute and continuo at Birmingham University.
