The Gonzaga Band was formed by the cornetist Jamie Savan in 1997 in order to explore historical approaches to the performance of vocal and instrumental music of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The primary focus of the group is the intimate relationship between vocal and instrumental performance practise.
The Gonzaga Band is renowned for it innovative programming and has released two CDs on the Chandos label to international critical acclaim:
Sacred Garland (2009) and Chamber Vespers (2011). Their third CD, Venice 1629 was recorded in the splendid acoustic of St Mary’s College Chapel, New Oscott in February 2018 and is scheduled for release in July.
