Linn Records Top 10
'Edinburgh based consort under the artistic direction of John Butt (conductor), Susan Hamilton and Philip Hobbs. It specializes in vocal music (particularly Baroque and new commissions) and frequently performs with the Dunedin Players (baroque period instruments).'
Winners of the 2008 Midem Baroque Award and the 2007 Classic FM Gramophone Award for Best Baroque Vocal Album for their recording of Handel's Messiah (Dublin Version, 1742) (Linn CKD 285), the Dunedin Consort and Players, under the artistic direction of John Butt, Susan Hamilton and Philip Hobbs, performs throughout Scotland and Europe.
John Butt is musical director for all larger projects and under him, the group has consolidated its existing strength in the Baroque repertoire, together with the development of the Dunedin Players, as an ensemble dedicated to performance with period instruments. The group also continues to commission new pieces to complement the old: William Sweeney, Errollyn Wallen, Peter Nelson and Sally Beamish have recently written or arranged works to match the scoring of specific programmes of seventeenth and eighteenth century music. The Consort has appeared at festivals in Belgium, Canada, France, Italy, Spain, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands as well as at Edinburgh International Festival. In 2010 it will be taking programmes to Israel and France.
Continuing to work with Linn Records, in 2008 the Dunedin Consort & Players released Bach's Matthew Passion (Last Performing Version, c. 1742) (Linn CKD 313) and Handel's Acis and Galatea (Original Cannons Performing Version, 1718) (Linn CKD 319). These have both received numerous plaudits, including the nomination for a Classic FM Gramophone award for Acis and Galatea.
