Established in 2014, the Iken Scholars are a London-based chamber choir dedicated to exploring hidden corners of the Renaissance repertoire. Recent performances have included masses and motets unheard in 400 years, as well as large-scale masterpieces from the central canon. Primarily focused on presenting unusual and liturgically-focused programmes in the capital, the choir is increasingly in demand in London’s cathedrals and further afield. The group is made up of young professionals and directed by Matthew Dunn. For more information, visit the choir's webpage:
