De Profundis is a hand-picked vocal ensemble that performs continental Renaissance sacred music at the original low pitch, using the all-adult-male forces appropriate to the period.

Next concert – cancelled
Unfortunately due to the worsening public health situation in the UK, our concert on Sat 9th May – Music from the New World – has been cancelled. We will be presenting this programme at a later date.
Our new CD of music by Juan Esquivel was released on Hyperion in March.
Esquivel ranks among the best composers of the Spanish Golden Age but has until recently languished under the shadows of the better-known Morales, Guerrero and Victoria. This is the first complete album devoted to his music (described by a contemporary as “skillful and very sonorous to the ear”) and is conducted by Eamonn Dougan of the Sixteen and I Fagiolini. Full details here. You can also listen to a couple of clips here.
