The Dowland Project will be performing music from the 'night sessions' album when this is released by ECM in the Spring. There is a dedicated page on this site here.
Lute songs with Ariel Abramovich and others: programmes are available with between one and three lutes and vihuelas. These are very flexible, and range from John Potter and Ariel Abramovich lute/vihuela to an expanded ensemble with Anna Maria Friman soprano and Jacob Heringman lute/vihuela. This larger ensemble has recently recorded music by Josquin and Victoria for ECM and has commissioned new music from Genesis keyboard player Tony Banks and Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones, putting these contemporary songwriters alongside Dowland and his contemporaries. There is a dedicated programme page here. John Potter will continue to develop the 15th/16th century 'intabulation' repertoire accompanied by Jacob Heringman and Ariel Abramovich, with whom he also performs a variety of English and Italian lute song programmes.
The Conductus Project
John Potter & Christopher O'Gorman tenors
Launched at the York Early Music Festival in July and coinciding with the release of the first of three CDs on Hyperion (which also feature Rogers Covey-Crump), this is an hour-long programme of 12th century song, presenting the first results of the AHRC-funded Cantum Pulcriorem Invenire research project led by Mark Everist. The music is accompanied by specially commissioned films by Michael Lynch. The programme will work well in concert halls with project facilities, but is ideal as a late-night, candle-lit event in a church (for which video projection facilities would need to be provided). There is a dedicated page on this site here.
John Potter, Christopher O'Gorman & Rogers Covey-Crump tenors
