Burgundian Consort


The Burgundian Consort has existed an advanced chamber choir in UNSW's choral program since around 1985. It includes only a small number of singers (12-18), including undergraduate and postgraduate students, alumni and staff, and sings challenging, unaccompanied repertoire. The Burgundian Consort presents a small annual recital 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.
