About

The Queen’s Revels is a mixed consort ‘compoounded of six severall instruments’ – lute, bandora, cittern, treble viol/violin, flute/recorder and bass viol. Since it was founded in 2008, the consort has been a medium for research and experimentation in late sixteenth-century English repertoire with a view to bringing this fascinating and beautiful music to the concert platform.

Having worked extensively under the guidance of Hopkinson Smith and Anthony Rooley (founder of the Consort of Musicke), The Queen’s Revels has also had close contact with the late musicologist Ian Harwood, a specialist in late sixteenth-century English music.

Members of The Queen's Revels come from Australia, Austria, England, France, Germany and Japan and are all alumni of the world-renowned Schola Cantorum in Basel, Switzerland. They have all performed at major international music festivals and have recorded with various early music ensembles including Ensemble Gilles Binchois, La Morra, Weserrenaissnce Bremen, Ensemble "Private Musicke" and Ensemble Dulce Melos.
