Welcome to the online home of Uncloistered, a vocal consort specializing in sacred and secular polyphony of the Renaissance. The Uncloistered sound is one of synergistic blend and ethereal purity, with historically appropriate pronunciation and inflection of texts.
Uncloistered formed in January, 2003, while the five members were attending Oberlin College and Conservatory. Our performances took place mainly in Oberlin, OH, Cleveland, OH, and Iowa City, IA (USA). Upon graduating from Oberlin, we moved to York to study in the unique Ensemble Singing program, studying under John Potter, a member of the Hilliard Ensemble from 1984 to 2001 and a founder of the ensemble Red Byrd, and Anna Maria Friman of the world-renowned ensemble Trio Mediaeval.
Uncloistered is available for hire for any and all special occasions, including weddings and funerals. For more information or to book your event, please email Uncloistered.
