The Ensemble Orlando Fribourg was founded in 1994 by Laurent Gendre. From its very inception, it devoted itself nearly exclusively to the works of the 16th and 17th centuries. More recently, it has been induced to consider some composers such as J.S. Bach, Nicolaus Bruhns or Dietrich Buxtehude. It produces some lively and modern renditions while striving to be true to the original.
