but not historically imprisoned."
Jury member, Internationaal Van Wassenaer Concours 2019
Hieronymus is a fresh, flexible early music collective, specialising in the performance of renaissance and early baroque vocal repertoire.
Experimenting with a bold, ornamented sound, and mixing strong voices with historical instruments, Hieronymus aims to bring a distinctive colour and character to the performance of both sacred and secular music from the 15th to 17th centuries.
Formed in 2017, and based in the Netherlands, the group comprises current students and graduates from the early music departments of the country's leading conservatories.
Hieronymus has performed widely across the Netherlands, both in regular concert series (Pieterskerk Utrecht, Kloosterkerk Den Haag), and at a wide variety of events, including the Organisatie Oude Muziek “Purcell dag”, a celebration of the 500th “birthday” of the Grote Kerk in Alkmaar, and as part of the “Art Stations of the Cross” festival at the Waalse Kerk in Amsterdam. In 2019 they were finalists in the Internationaal Van Wassenaer Concours, where they were praised for their versatility, flexibility, and boldness of style.
