About Us

Consort Mirabile is a vocal and instrumental ensemble specialized in Renaissance and early Baroque music. The players use a wide range of recorders in order to create a varied palette of timbres, which blends beautifully with the voice of the singer.

As graduates of many reputable conservatoires around the world, the members are all experienced solo and ensemble performers with a special focus on historical performance practices.

Consort Mirabile has had the opportunity to perform Fringe concerts at renowned early music festivals such as Festival Oude Muziek Utrecht, MA Festival Brugge and the Reincken Festival in Deventer. The summer of 2016 saw them not only performing as one of the promising ensembles at the International Young Artist's Presentation, IYAP, in Antwerpen but also taking part in the International Music Festival of Piantón, Spain, as one of the Artists in Residence.


With an ensemble consisting of multi-talented musicians their performances include not just playing and singing but they also include historical texts, poems and theatrical elements. Each concert of Consort Mirabile has a story to tell.
