Psallite

Psallite is a four-part vocal group performing Early Music from the 12th Century to the 17th.  The main repertoire is drawn from English street broadsides and the tavern catches and lays, as well as the courtly madrigals of England, Italy, Spain and France.  Their performances are marked by their tight harmonies, occasional instrumentation, and experiments with the traditions of the music.

They have given warm, entertaining and very tight performances at the Southwest Music Festival in Nannup, Fairbridge and Toodyay folk festivals, as well as various functions and folk clubs.

From the courtly music of King Henry VIII to the broadsides of the street corners, from the additive chants of the monastery cloisters to the rollicking music of the catch clubs and pubs, Psallite performs in their own unique style; Their music has both history and life.
