Formed in 2014 for a performance of Don Carlo Gesualdo’s Tenebrae Responsories for Maundy Thursday at Trinity College Cambridge, and along with Park, it features a handpicked group of England’s finest young consort singers: Guy James and Alex Chance (countertenors), Joseph Wicks and Josh Cooter (tenors), Michael Craddock (baritone) and Samuel Mitchell (bass).
