Established in 2013, Eo Nomine is an unconducted five-part consort whose members all met on the inaugural Genesis Sixteen scheme. Their first concert in June 2013 saw the group perform as part of the Voices Now Festival at the Roundhouse, which led to an appearance alongside the Hilliard Ensemble on BBC Radio 3's In Tune. Continuing a strong relationship with the Hilliard Ensemble, Eo Nomine performed in Trinity College, Cambridge for the 2014 Cambridge Early Music Festival in a collaborative gala concert alongside the Hilliard Ensemble, Singer Pur and amarcord. They made their debut solo London concert in November 2014 at St Clement Danes Church and have recently performed at The Sixteen’s Sounds Sublime festival, alongside the Tallis Scholars for the launch of Choral at Cadogan at the Cadogan Hall, and at Temple's 2015 Winter Festival. Eo Nomine are currently part of a three year Open Space residency at Aldeburgh Music.
As a group of singers their interests are diverse, with members singing in ensembles including Alamire, The Sixteen, Tallis Scholars and the choir of Westminster Cathedral as well as performing with companies including the Aldeburgh Festival, Brighton Early Music Festival, Garsington Opera, the Philarmonia Orchestra and Samling Academy. The group's diverse range of singing activities lies at the core of what lends them a unique sound and approach to performance.
As well as standard perfomances Eo Nomine are keen to explore programmes and performance opportunities that venture away from the traditional concert platform. Current projects include a multimedia project based around Buxtehude's Membra Jesu Nostri and a programme centred on Britten's Sacred and Profane.
" Eo Nomine gave us an impressive group of madrigals by Monteverdi, Gesualdo and Schütz singing with great sense of interaction and vivid characterisation, and some of the naughty bits in the Gesualdo were wonderful. " - Robert Hugill, July 2015
