Notes & Reviews:

Stylistic innovators, amazing music makers, historically informed, fun loving, occasionally bawdy, and always surprising, The Baltimore Consort continues to explore the relationship between 'folk' and 'fine'. Founded in 1980 to perform the repertory for Elizabethan consort, The Baltimore Consort is one of the world's most exciting early music ensembles.
