Das Consort Franckfort
Das Consort Franckfort was founded in 1994 by tenor Edmund Brownless, a specialist in early music. Under his direction, the professional singers of the ensemble perform a spectrum of music ranging from medieval to modern, in an emotional, lively and entertaining manner.
The sheer variety
of timbres enables Das Consort Franckfort to perform vocal music from all
periods convincingly. Early music, especially polyphonic, sounds
clear and precise; the music of later periods full, rich and sonorous.
All the singers are trained soloists who provide a high level of technique,
musicality and sense of style. In using one singer to a voice,
the ensemble achieves a transparency of sound resulting in a
new hearing experience - even for well known works. Das Consort Franckfort
seeks to create an authentic performance through the relationship
of historical pronunciation, rhetoric and music.
