Concerto delle Donne

The sound of three sopranos - unique, brilliant and sensuous, captivating the ear and moving the heart today as it did in the courts and churches of Europe in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries.

Inevitably in the seventeen years of its existence Concerto delle Donne's personnelle has changed a number of times. Over the years Gill and Alastair are pleased to have made music with many wonderful singers and friends - Rachel Platt, Helen Parker, Donna Deam and Faye Newton, and now Miriam Allan, Katy Hill and Philippa Hyde, who sing with CDD as and when their busy freelance schedules allow.

We are also fortunate in having a large 'pool' of singers who become the Concerto delle Donne choir in our programmes of Charpentier's music for nuns, Carissimi's Jephte, and music by Fauré, Poulenc and Massenet. They first sang with us on our recording of Charpentier in Rozay-en-Brie in 2005, and since then have sung in St John's Smith Square, three concerts in Douai Abbey, two in St Michael's Framlingham, and Queen's College Oxford. We are very grateful to them for the hard work they put in and the immense enthusiasm they bring to these programmes.
