aranella Early Music Consort
12th to 18th Centuries : Medieval, Renaissance, Early Baroque
Maranella is an Early Music Group playing mainly secular medieval, renaissance and baroque music from the 12th to the 18th Centuries on period instruments.
We dress in medieval costume and play a variety of early music instruments including recorders, lute, harp and bagpipes. Our singing includes a capella (unaccompanied) part songs, catches and rounds as well as songs accompanied by lute, harp and other instruments.
Based near Chester, Cheshire
Maranella existed for many years as a recorder consort (usually one to a part) which, over time, expanded to include other period instruments and voices.
We play secular early music, mainly songs and dance tunes,
from the 12th century up to and including the baroque period.
VoicesWe have several superb singers in the group who are used to singing together in parts either a capella (unaccompanied) or with lute, harp and other instrumental accompaniment.
Typical repertoire includes songs such as Summer is Icumin In, Of all the Birds (Ravenscroft), Blow Thy Horn Hunter, Stella Splendens.
For a medieval themed wedding our a capella singing adds a touch of pure magic
