London based ensemble , the Nightingale Consort  was "born" out of the desire to  perform “Early Music” ( music pre -1800s) with freedom of spirit and natural spontaneity, conveying the group’s passion for this rich and varied repertoire. Combining music,  theatre and stories from these past ages, the Nightingale Consort's vibrant performances take their audience on a journey in turns atmospheric, dramatic and joyfully uplifting, enhanced visually by beautiful costumes inspired by Celtic mythology and Romantic gothic styles. As at home on the band circuit as the concert platform, they enjoy looking for opportunities of working in different and unusual places.
