The n'Early Music Consort
(or nMC), a filk choir based in the UK, made its debut in 1995 at Obliter-8
(the eighth British national filk convention). Their repertoire is eclectic:
arrangements by members of the choir (predominently Rhodri) of filksongs;
arrangements by filkers outside the choir of filksongs; choral pieces
by composers such as J S Bach and R Vaughan Williams that have been
subjected to the filk process; the oeuvre of Messrs Gilbert and Sullivan;
original choral pieces written for the choir; and in at least once instance
a piece of found choral filk. Most songs are performed a capella. Some
however have instrumental accompaniment, such as drum, guitar, bass,
or more recently keyboards.
The members of The n'Early Music Consort are (for the sake of the 2007 Pegasus Awards): DJ Bass, Marion Beet, Abigail Crook, Deborah Crook, Chris Croughton, Simon Fairbourn, Rick Hewett, Valerie Housden, Rhodri James, Deborah Levy, Anna Raftery, Emily Raftery, Joe Raftery, Mich Sampson, Kate Soley-Barton, Marilisa Valtazanou, Richard Wheatley, and Tricia Williams.
