Biography

Catherine King and Jacob Heringman have made numerous appearances and broadcasts together throughout Europe and America.

Their four duo CDs (on ASV and Linn) have all been met with critical acclaim. Their latest release, Madrigals by Verdelot, with tenor Charles Daniels, was launched with a concert at London’s Wigmore Hall. Heringman is also a renowned soloist.

Catherine and Jacob have also recorded for Naxos (with The Rose Consort of Viols), Riverrun (with The Marini Consort) and for Virgin (with Virelai).

In addition to performing lute songs of the Renaissance and early Baroque periods, the duo has championed the cause of the contemporary lute song, attracting several new commissions by British and American composers, including Malcolm Bruno, Andrew Keeling and Peter Sinfield (of King Crimson).

“As one might expect, this recording is a thing of great beauty, subtly chosen and blended by performers of impeccable pedigree and virtuosity. Catherine King has a voice that many singers would die — or even kill — for. It is absolutely flawless, stunningly accurate, and its quality has uniformity across the range that would make any other singer spit. She is well paired with Jacob Heringmans equally subtle and artful playing.”
- Julia Craig-McFeely, Early Music Review, May 1999
