Swingle Singers

Galan is a spirited young ensemble committed to rediscovering the exciting sound world of three sopranos. In 2010 the ensemble was selected as Brighton Early Music Festival Young Artists. The group has travelled to Spain and made their Italian debut in Ferrara in 2012 - performing in the very rooms in which their favourite European Renaissance and Baroque Music would have been performed.

Little Baroque Company
The Little baroque Company specialises in 17th. and 18th. century music. Th ensemble performs on period instruments - regularly appearing at the London Handel Festival; and has toured France, Spain, Scotland, Ireland and Australia.
