Biography

The Dunedin Consort & Players is a Scottish-based ensemble specializing in Baroque and Contemporary music directed by John Butt. 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 commissions new pieces to complement the old: William Sweeney, Errollyn Wallen, Peter Nelson and Sally Beamish have written or arranged works to complement the era of George Buchanan and Song of Songs settings of Heinrich Schütz, the motets of Bach and the tercentenary of Buxtehude’s death.

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. It has worked in collaboration with ensembles including the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Sinfonia 21, Scottish Ensemble, Mr McFall’s Chamber, Paragon Ensemble, Florilegium, La Serenissima and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, has appeared on the major BBC television channels, and been broadcast on Radio 3 and BBC Scotland.

In 2008 the Dunedin Consort & Players released Bach’s last performing version, c.1742, of the St Matthew Passion (Linn CKD 313) and Handel’s Acis and Galatea, was released in November 2008.

    i just purchased the dunedin consort recording of the bach mass in b minor from linn records, on the basis of of their listenable excerpts. i'm finding it to be the most beautifully-articulated and recorded version of this piece that i've ever had the pleasure of listening to. stunning!!
