Liturina is a dynamic chamber ensemble dedicated to exploring diverse and challenging repertoire on historical instruments. Drawn together through their love of baroque chamber music, Iain Hall and Gabi Jones began playing together in 2017, and founded Liturina the following year. The ensemble has been playing in its current setup since 2021.

 They performed extensively whilst at the Royal College of Music, including as part of the prestigious Kit and Constant Lambert Fellowship, and were awarded the Richard III Prize for Historical Performance in 2018 and 2019. Liturina was selected for the final of the York Early Music International Young Artists Competition in 2022, with their programme heralded as ‘particularly delicately played… an impressive performance’ - Andrew Benson-Wilson. The ensemble were participants on the Brighton Early Music Festival Live! scheme during 22/23 and was invited to participate in ECOS Labs at the Festival Internacional de Música Antigua de Sierra Espuña. Liturina is proud to be on the Philip and Dorothy Green Artists scheme in association with Making Music and is the Ensemble-in-Residence at St. Clement Danes Church for 2024.

 Liturina is passionate about exploring the space where historical performance and other genres intersect. In 2021 they collaborated with London-based jazz composer Jonny Mansfield, who composed ‘1038’, an original work based on Bach’s trio sonata. Supported by the Continuo Foundation and RCM Accelerate, they have gone on to commission a further work and produce a CD. In addition to extensive performances across the UK, Liturina’s members are committed educators and are passionate about bringing historical performance to as wide an audience as possible.

Liturina’s members have flourishing careers, collaborating with historical ensembles such as Florilegium, Academy of Ancient Music, The English Concert, La Serenissima, Orchestre Revolutionnaire et Romantique, OAE, and are in demand as chamber musicians internationally and at home. Beyond historical performance, each member has a wealth of knowledge and experience drawn from diverse areas of music making, allowing Liturina to challenge accepted ideas and gain a fresh perspective.
