The Gesualdo Six - United Kingdom

The Gesualdo Six
The Gesualdo Six, founded in 2014 by Owain Park, is an award-winning British vocal consort specialising in the performance of renaissance polyphony. As a group that was first formed for a performance of Carlo Gesualdo’s Tenebrae Responsories in Cambridge, our passion for early music really has continued to stay at the heart of our work as an ensemble, from our programming and recordings, to our education workshops, to research projects and our social media content. 

Notable highlights include a concert in the distinguished Deutschlandradio Debut Series, performances at renowned venues including London’s Wigmore Hall, New York’s Miller Theatre, the Sydney Opera House, and our debut at the BBC Proms in 2023. 

We have collaborated with Fretwork, the Brodsky Quartet, and Matilda Lloyd, and tour a work of concert-theatre titled Secret Byrd with Director, Bill Barclay.

We are committed to music education, regularly hosting workshops for young musicians and composers. We have curated two Composition Competitions, with the most recent edition drawing entries from over three hundred composers worldwide. We recently commissioned new works from Shruthi Rajasekar and Joanna Marsh, alongside coronasolfège for 6 by Héloïse Werner.

We released our debut recording English Motets on Hyperion Records in early 2018 to critical acclaim, followed by six further albums (Christmas, Fading, Josquin's Legacy, Tenebrae Responsories, Lux Aeterna, and Byrd: Mass for five voices) and most recently, Morning Star.
