The Collegio Antico Early Music Ensemble was established in 1993 at the initiative of a group of musicians, members of various ensembles who had earlier played in concerts and recording sessions together. Graduates of music schools in Poland, Britain and Germany, they all polished their skills at numerous courses in the interpretation of early music held by W Kuijken, R. van der Meer, S.Pank, The King’s Singers, N. North and R. Ehrlich.

Collegio Antico is pursuing intense concert activities in Poland and abroad. It performs in various instrumental and vocal lineups, numbering from 3 to 12 musicians. The ensemble specializes in repertoire from the 15th to the 18th century, performed on replicas of old instruments.

The repertoire of Collegio Antico includes several thematic programmes:

– Codex Specialnik (15th cent.),
– From the musical manuscripts of the Jagiellonian Library (1420-1430),
– Music for Christmas (15th-17th cent.; joint Polish-German project),
– The Art of Ornamentation – 17th century Italian music,
– The Pelplin Tablature (17th cent.),
– The Conversation between Master Polycarp and Death (15th cent. – theatre performance),
– 17th century English music,
– Songs and dances (15th-16th cent.),
– Adam Jarzębski and Johann Fisher (17th cent.).
