:: Programmes for 2015-16

John Potter


These are my current collaborative programmes - each has a dedicated page on this site. For further details please get in touch with me directly or with Robert White Artist Management via the Contacts page.


Amores Pasados


amores pasados

This new ensemble features the voice and Hardanger fiddle of Anna Maria Friman and the lutes of Ariel Abramovich and Jacob Heringman. The group’s repertoire ranges from sacred music by Josquin and Victoria to new music by John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin), Tony Banks (Genesis) and Sting. The album Amores Pasados was released to great critical acclaim in 2105 and there will be a new release in 2016, when the quartet will also be celebrating the Shakespeare anniversary.




This research project, led by Mark Everist at the University of Southampton, has generated three CDs for Hyperion and re-unites John Potter with his former Masters student Christopher O’Gorman and ex Hilliard Ensemble colleague Rogers Covey-Crump. The trio continues to offer programmes of 12th century music, and is now exploring wider repertoire from anon to Machaut.

Lute songs




Programmes (with Ariel Abramovich) range from English lute songs to the Italian division repertoire (from Ford to Ferrari...) and also 15th & 16th century sacred music intabulated for voice and lute or vihuela.

In 2016 they will be joined by Jacob Heringman for programmes combining the virtuosic Italian ‘division school’ with duets for two lutes.


The Dowland Project



The Dowland Project is performing music from the 'Night Sessions' album as well as its previous three CDs. The band is currently experimenting with Schubert.
