Music for a Midsummers Eve, with the Gsualdo Six

Music for a Midsummer’s Eve, with the Gesualdo Six

What could be more beautiful ?

A midsummer English evening, sipping Rose’ with summer nibbles on Holdenby’s lawn. Then listening to transcendent music by one of the UK’s finest choral groups in our 14th Century Church.

The award winning Gesualdo Six will be performing a programme inspired by the service of Compline that marks the end of the day, evoking a contemplative atmosphere. It will include renaissance polyphony by Lobo, Shephard and Palestrina. Then a turning point, as the light returns, birds sing and flowers bloom again with contemporary reflections by Velio Tormis, Joanna Marsh and Sarah Rimkus.

All funds raised from tickets will go to the Holdenby Church Organ Restoration Fund


The Gesualdo Six is an award-winning British vocal ensemble comprising some of the UK’s finest consort singers, directed by Owain Park. Praised for their imaginative programming and impeccable blend, the ensemble formed in 2014 for a performance of Gesualdo’s Tenebrae Responsories in Cambridge and has gone on to perform at numerous major festivals across the UK, Europe, North America,
Australia and New Zealand.

“Their sound seemed to float in mid-air before reaching the ears of the rapt audience…every line, every gorgeous texture was radiantly clear.” The Times
