NEW in 2019 – The long-awaited debut recording of Siobhán Armstrong’s chamber-music ensemble, The Irish Consort.

A pioneering recording of the music of Gaelic Ireland juxtaposed with that of the invading Tudor English. Late-Medieval Irish plainchant; vocal and instrumental music of Henry VIII, Cooper, Cornysh, Holborne, Byrd, Dowland, Scott, MacDermott, Ó Catháin, and that of oral tradition, more than a third of which is reconstructed and recorded here for the first time. Performed by thirteen of Ireland and Europe’s best historical and traditional singers and performers on Irish harp, European harp, Renaissance lute, treble and bass viols, recorders and voices, including the Grammy-award nominee, tenor John Elwes.

Contains 24-page informational booklet.

Produced with generous funding from the Arts Council Music Recording Scheme, managed by Music Network. Siobhán Armstrong would also like to thank the many individual financial supporters, who made this recording possible.
