The Corvus Consort is a vocal ensemble based in the UK.
Our singers are drawn from a pool of young professionals in the early stages of their singing careers, directed by our founder Freddie Crowley.
With key objectives of musical versatility and innovative programming, we perform in a wide variety of genres and styles, ranging from the Renaissance to the present day. The ensemble is also flexible in size and forces, so it can be carefully tailored to each particular performance context.
Starting life in 2018, we rebranded as the Corvus Consort in July 2020, with the release of two videos, produced remotely during the first Coronavirus lockdown.
Christmas 2020 saw “Twelve Composers Composing”, our project of new commissions from twelve of the UK’s most exciting young composers, which premiered in 12 short videos released online throughout the Twelve Days of Christmas.
“Since its inception, Corvus Consort has impressed me with their programming which is both creative and very imaginative … they are an ensemble with a very exciting future; everything they do is well thought out and of a very high artistic standard.”
Harry Christophers CBE
Founder & Conductor of The Sixteen
