Ensemble of the Fourteenth Century

The Ensemble of the Fourteenth Century is a collective of specialist singers and instrumentalists brought together for the Fourteenth Century Recording Project. The ensemble was initially formed around the leading Australian mediaeval ensemble La Romanesca, which was expanded to provide the varied instrumental and vocal combinations required by the repertoire.

Press quote

“the occasional track can do wonders to relieve sensory biliousness if you're indulging in an unrelieved diet of orchestral and/or operatic music: epicurean excess for the ear.”
