Biography Hilliard Ensemble (U.K.)

The Hilliard Ensemble is one of the world's finest vocal chamber groups, and is probably unrivalled for its formidable reputation in the fields of both early and new music. Its distinctive style and highly developed musicianship engage the listener as much in medieval and renaissance repertoire as in works specially written for the group by living composers. They worked with the saxophonist Jan Garbarek, with whom they have enjoyed huge success throughout the world. Concerts with major orchestras have included performances with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra and others.
