Taverner Choir, Consort & Players

Biography

The Taverner Choir & Players form part of a chameleon-like performing body founded by Andrew Parrott in 1973, which aspires to marry first-rate performance and exploratory scholarship. This partnership has resulted in some 60 pioneering recordings, from Machaut via Monteverdi to Bach and beyond, including Parrott's own première reconstruction of Bach's lost Trauer-Music for Prince Leopold (2011), Monteverdi's L'Orfeo (2013) and Taverner's Western Wind mass (2016). The Taverner enterprise, though broad in its reach, remains small-scale in order to retain flexibility and freshness.
