Laudantes Consort (Vocal Ensemble)

Founded: 1991 - Brussels, Belgium

The Laudantes Consort was founded in 1991 by its conductor Guy Janssens, with the aim of performing Renaissance choral music. A series of concerts and a collection of 12 CD's, LAge dOr de la polyphonie vocale européenne (the Golden Age of European choral polyphony), brought the ensemble international acclaim.

Several awards crowned this achievement and led the Laudantes Consort into the Baroque, Classical, Romantic and contemporary repertoires. Music from the 15th and 16th centuries is performed in small choir format (a dozen singers), whereas the other periods are covered by ad hoc teams of singers and/or players chosen for their specialist knowledge of the given repertoire. This variable geometry has allowed the ensemble to complete another large-scale concert and recording project entitled Requiem à travers les siècles (A History of the Requiem), which has also found great favour with the general public and critics alike.
