Mary-Jannet Leith  recorder

Thomas Allery  harpsichord


Ensemble Hesperi is a young, innovative, Early Music duo based in London. Its core members, Thomas Allery and Mary-Jannet Leith, are dedicated to showcasing the infinite colours and possibilities of their instruments, harpsichord and recorder.

They have a particular interest in promoting unpublished and previously undiscovered Scottish Baroque repertoire, and in exploring the fascinating links between Scotland, London, and the continent through Baroque music during the eighteenth century.
