Burgundian Consort

Burgundian Consort

The Burgundian Consort has existed as an elite arm of the Collegium Musicum Choir for many years (since about 1985). It includes only a small number of singers (12-18), mostly (but not exclusively) undergraduate music students and sings challenging, unaccompanied repertoire.

The Burgundian Consort presents a small annual recital in September of each year as well as being part of some concerts of the Collegium Musicum. In recent years, the Burgundian Consort’s repertoire has included Copland's In the Beginning, Britten’s Sacred and Profane, Palestrina’s Missa Aeterna Christi Munera, Wesley-Smith's Who Killed Cock Robin? and Debussy's Trois Chansons de Charles d'Orleans.

Responsibilities

Singing in the chamber choir format for weekly rehearsals (2 hours), related preparation of repertoire, and public performances.

How to get involved

Membership of the Burgundian Consort is by audition, and is based almost entirely on sight-singing, experience and vocal quality. Singers in the Burgundian Consort tend to be experienced choristers with high-level music literacy. To book an audition time for O Week please email cmc@unsw.edu.au
