Sinfonye is one of the UK’s most accomplished and exciting medieval music ensembles, whose Hyperion-label discs have received many prizes and whose work is regarded as seminal in its influence of a new generation of performers. For BEMF 2011 Sinfonye presents a new programme, in collaboration with the University of Birmingham’s Director of CEMPR, Mary O’Neill, of exquisite music from 13th-century France, including some of the earliest pieces of composed vernacular music in three- and four parts, marking the birth of a tradition of ‘European harmony’. Sinfonye’s founder and director, Stevie Wishart is also a composer of international standing, one of whose most recent innovative compositions was a 2011 Prom commission. In support of The Children’s Liver Fund.
