Founded by organist and conductor Christopher Monks in 2001, Armonico are one of the largest organisations of their kind in the UK. Using authentic period instruments, the baroque consort regularly perform with some of the best solo musicians in the world.

This Coventry concert sees Armonico retelling the legendary story of Beowulf, a fantasy saga and the oldest surviving poem in Old English.

The work has been written for soprano, choir, harp, keyboards and children’s choir by Armonico’s composer-in-residence and former BBC Proms Young Composer of the Year, Toby Young.
