Formerly the New Oxford Consort who performed at Wellhayes in September 2019, the Corvus Consort changed their name in July 2020, with the release of two videos, produced remotely during the first Coronavirus lockdown. The singers are drawn from a pool of young professionals in the early stages of their singing careers, directed by their founder Freddie Crowley. With key objectives of musical versatility and innovative programming, the Corvus Ensemble perform in a wide variety of genres and styles, ranging from the Renaissance to the present day.

The varied programme will be:

Max Reger (1873-1916) – Morgengesang, Op. 138, No. 2
Robert Pearsall (1795-1856) – Take, O take those lips away, Light of my soul, There is a paradise on Earth
Johannes Brahms (1833-1897) – Fünf Gesänge, Op. 104
Gustav Holst (1874-1934) – Light leaves whisper
Max Reger (1873-1916) – Nachtlied, Op. 138, No. 3
Judith Weir (b. 1954) – Love bade me welcome
Alec Roth (b. 1948) – I will move thee, Men & Angels
Rebecca Clarke (1886-1979) – Ave Maria (upper voices only)
Franz Lachner (1803-1890) – Ave Maria (lower voices only)
Gerald Finzi (1901-1956) – Selection from Seven Poems of Robert Bridges
Max Bruch (1838-1920) – Morgengesang, Op. 71, No. 7
