Burgundian Consort


Time: 4:00-6:00pm Monday, during term

Location: Online


Auditions for Term 1 2022 will take place in O Week (7-13 February 2022).

The Burgundian Consort has existed as an elite arm of the Collegium Musicum Choir for many years (since about 1985). It includes only a small number of singers (12-18), mostly (but not exclusively) undergraduate music students and sings challenging, unaccompanied repertoire. The Burgundian Consort presents a small annual recital in September of each year as well as being part of some concerts of the Collegium Musicum. In recent years, the Burgundian Consort’s repertoire has included Copland's In the Beginning, Britten’s Sacred and Profane, Palestrina’s Missa Aeterna Christi Munera, Wesley-Smith's Who Killed Cock Robin? and Debussy's Trois Chansons de Charles d'Orleans. The evening program also includes the premiere performance of the Willgoss Choral Composition Prize.

Membership of the Burgundian Consort is by audition, and is based almost entirely on sight-singing, experience and vocal quality. Singers in the Burgundian Consort tend to be experienced choristers with high-level music literacy.
