The British sopranos Angela Hicks and Penelope Appleyard came together in a shared love of early music, but also a love of jazz and folk and a desire to take a new, creative approach to historical repertoire. This led to their ensemble Fair Oriana, founded in 2018, with which they have developed programmes such as Trials & Triumphs of Oriana and Silver Baroque. In January 2020, they made their debut at the Konzerthaus Wien with Thou Shalt Not Steal, a folk-inspired programme about the character of Robin Hood. They recently recorded Thomas Morley’s Canzonets for Two Voices.
