Ensemble Gombert
Australia's leading Renaissance chamber choir, Ensemble Gombert, is noted for its pure intonation and historic approach to choral sound and style.

The choir will appear at Stanford as part of its third international tour, performing early music by Bach, Josquin, Tallis, and others, as well as modern choral works including compositions by Elliott Carter and Morten Lauridsen.
