Huelgas Ensemble
Paul van Nevel (conductor)

One of the most enterprising and accomplished of the specialist vocal ensembles on today's early music scene, the Huelgas Ensemble and founder/conductor Paul van Nevel make their BBC Proms debut with a characteristically imaginative programme centering on the little-known repertoire of choral music from Renaissance Poland - most of it rarely heard these days, and some of it only recently re-discovered in the archives of the University of Warsaw. Alongside the Polish music are works by 16th-century composers from other corners of Europe - including the great Italian Luca Marenzio, the Dutch-born Johannes Wanning, and Christoph Demantius from Bohemia.
