Unearthing musical treasures
For over thirty years, Musica Secreta has explored the music written for and by women from the fifteenth to the eighteenth century. Combining expert scholarship and musical virtuosity, we present programmes that mix newly-discovered masterpieces with well-loved works that challenge and delight our listeners.
Our latest CD, From Darkness Into Light: The complete Lamentations of Jeremiah for Good Friday by Antoine Brumel, is available on Obsidian Records CD719. Buy it and our other recordings from the shop. See our Events Diary for news of concerts and workshops.
Supporting women’s choirs
Whatever we find, we share! We want to make it so upper-voice and women’s ensembles everywhere can enjoy singing early choral repertoire: there is so much to discover. We welcome enquiries from any upper-voice choir – whether school, community, or faith-based – wishing to extend their repertoire of polyphony, and are delighted to work with groups to develop bespoke workshops. Please see our For Choirs pages or get in touch if you have questions or ideas!
We are always adding to the music available in our score shop for upper-voices choirs, together with accompaniment scores and backing tracks for online rehearsal.
Can you help us?
The best way to support us is to come to our concerts, and to buy our recordings and our scores for your choirs – but we are also happy to receive donations (via the button on the right), no matter what the amount, whether single gifts or regular (monthly or annual) payments. We are a UK registered charity, so if you are a UK taxpayer, your gift may also qualify for Gift Aid if you wish.
