Elin Manahan Thomas is one of the most exceptional sopranos of her generation. She has performed at many of the world’s most prestigious venues and festivals, and with leading orchestras and conductors. Perhaps most famously known for her performances of baroque masterpieces - such as Handel's ‘Eternal Source of Light Divine’ at the Opening Ceremony of the 2012 London Paralympic games and at the recent royal wedding.

Elizabeth Kenny is one of Europe’s leading lute players. Her playing has been described as “incandescent” (Music and Vision), “radical” (The Independent) and “indecently beautiful” (Toronto Post). In twenty years of touring she has played with many of the world’s best period instrument groups.
