Biography

Soprano Jeni Melia is a member of The English Ayre, a small circle of musicians dedicated to performing early music in an engaging way.

Jeni Melia has studied with Mary Bainbridge and Ruth Holton, and has participated in masterclasses with Emma Kirkby. She sings with the Concord Singers and has recently performed solos in Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas, Faure’s Requiem, Pergolesi’s Salve Regina, Mozart’s Laudate Dominum, Vivaldi’s Gloria, Arne’s Shakespeare Songs, Handel’s Messiah, and a song cycle, Love’s Bitter-Sweet, specially composed for her by Paul Edwards.

Recently discovering that she possesses an unusual natural gift for lute song, Melia gave her first full-length recital of lute songs in 2002. She has been recorded performing the music of Paul Edwards, on the CD No Small Wonder (Lammas Records), and has recently released her first full solo CD, The Last of Old England, a thoughtful exploration of the overlap between Elizabethan era lute song and folk song.
