2013 is a busy year for Faye and sees the release of an exciting new recording of Monteverdi's 'Orfeo' by the Taverner Consort (directed by Andrew Parrott) on which Faye sings the role of Euridice, opposite Charles Daniels in the title role. (Watch this space for further details).
She will also be revisiting productions of 'The Fairy Queen' and 'King Arthur' with the New London Consort (directed by Philip Pickett) this Spring, with performances in Birmingham and Istanbul.
The Gonzaga Band will be performing its acclaimed The Secret Muse: Music at the Court of Late Renaissance Ferrara programme in June 2013 (Swaledale Festival on 2nd, and Music in Lyddington on 15th). 'the upper two parts (Faye Newton soprano and Jamie Savan cornett), were performed with a virtuosity that a decade or two ago would have been unimaginable.' (Early Music Review, August 2012)
Next concert: Faye will be performing The Muses Gardin for Delights: a programme of lute songs for the Spring, with lutenist Jacob Heringman at the Ilkley Playhouse on 19th March 2013, and again as part of the University of Leeds International Concert Series on 1st May 2013.
