Eo Nomine formed in 2013 at the Genesis Sixteen scheme and is part of an exciting new generation of vocal ensembles. Combining evocative pieces from the 16th century and familiar festive carols, Eo Nomine present a programme swathed in the scent of Christmas. Cinnamon, allspice, frankincense, and perfumes from the East join motets rejoicing in the birth of the newborn babe.

” Eo Nomine gave us an impressive group of madrigals by Monteverdi, Gesualdo and Sch├╝tz singing with great sense of interaction and vivid characterisation, and some of the naughty bits in the Gesualdo were wonderful. “

Robert Hugill
