The Cambridge Early Music Consort

Cambridge Early Music ConsortA recital of English polyphony from the 14th to the 16th centuries, performed by Cambridge’s specialist early music vocal ensemble.

THE CAMBRIDGE EARLY MUSIC CONSORT (CEMC) was founded in 2022 by Matthew Gouldstone and Edward Wickham. The principal ambition of the ensemble is to engage Cambridge University’s finest singers in vocal repertoire pre-1530 which they might not otherwise have encountered through their college choirs. In that respect, CEMC complements and builds upon the training that Cambridge choral scholars already receive, introducing students to a wide variety of approaches; from specific historic performance practices to the fundamentals of research, rehearsal and presentation.

CEMC’s initial focus will be on English repertoire, and the group is currently involved in a collaboration with the scholarly series Early English Church Music, making open access recordings of works from the volumes for the use of scholars and performers.

At the end of the concert, there will be a retiring collection, for which we would like to suggest £10.
