Autumn concerts

Published: 28th August 2012

We’ve got some exciting concerts lined up in the next few months, beginning with our only Scottish appearance this year in St Mary’s Cathedral Edinburgh tomorrow evening at 9pm – a lovely programme of ‘Music for the Close of Day’, which went down a treat when we performed it in Wales earlier in the Summer.

Then we’re at King’s Place on September 15th, and the Brighton Early Music Festival on November 1st, with other things in the pipeline – for more information on these and other upcoming performances, visit our ‘Concerts’ page!

"Singing one person to a part, the Marian Consort give sublimely refined, spacious and impeccably tuned performances."

The Sunday Times

The Gaurdian

"'performances are always vibrant and perfectly tuned’"

The Times

"There is an alluring, sometimes intoxicating equilibrium about this disc, regulated by the pure-toned intimacy and blend of Rory McCleery’s fine ensemble."

The Scotsman

"The singers perform with a yearning intensity which is just exquisite."


"Exemplary one-to-a-part performances ... the singing is as impassioned as it is effortlessly elegant."

BBC Music Magazine

"This is no-nonsense musicianship, but for all that thoroughly musical ... The unfussy performance helps the music enormously."


"The Marian Consort has built an enviable reputation for coolly poised and precisely balanced performances and indeed there are times here when the listener can only sit back and admire, seduced by the sheer beauty of sound."

Early Music Today

"The Marian Consort’s performances deliver full value in terms of expressive range and sophistication. Pitch-perfect tuning and immaculately clean ensemble … add further to the attractions of this eminently listenable recital."
