La Folie Consort was founded in 2016 by Luke Haydn: Harpsichordist, Organist and Composer. It all began in the Autumn of 2016, with a successful première concert at St Mary's Church, East Lavant.
The orchestra consists of members from various backgrounds, and a good mix of generations, young and old. They view the diverse experiences and knowledge of the members of the consort as one of their key strengths!
They pride themselves on looking deeply into the history that surrounds the music they perform, in such a way that creates a historically informed performance, even down to the typefaces of the sheet
music they play from. Original manuscripts and several editions are deeply perused for each concert, to ensure the notes they play are as close to how the composer intended as they can achieve.
They like to keep their fingers on the pulse of the latest discoveries, and developments, in Baroque Music to inform their performances.
