Our first ever commission was Joanna Ward’s Christus factus est, which we are excited to have recorded on our next album for Hyperion.
During the first lockdown, we found ourselves glued to our screens as Héloïse Werner captured our imaginations with her coronasolfège videos. We thought it would be fun to try it out for ourselves! Watch coronasolfége for 6.
For our collaboration with trumpeter Matilda Lloyd, we commissioned Deborah Pritchard to compose a setting called The Light Thereof. We can’t wait to give the premiere of this work later this year! We have also commissioned Aura by Richard Barnard. Listen to us rehearse his piece.
We commissioned Kerensa Briggs to compose a new anglican chant for Psalm 101 for our debut appearance on BBC Radio 3 Choral Evensong, which was broadcast live from St Martin-in-the-Fields on Wednesday 19 August 2020.
Last year Donna McKevitt composed a beautiful new setting of the Nunc Dimittis in Latin for us called Lumen.
The Gesualdo Six has curated two Composition Competitions, with the 2019 edition attracting entries from over three hundred composers around the world.
