Chant21 is a vocal-instrumental group, founded in 2016 by Jacek Wisłocki, a tenor based in Dublin, and Jerzy Żak, a lutenist from Warsaw. We are  dedicated to the performance of rare masterpieces of European music to the Irish audience, by collaborating with musicians of the highest international standards. The group has recently premiered in Ireland sacred works by S.S. Szarzyński evoking the Golden Age of 17th C Poland as well as a selection of lesser known Italian Baroque cantatas ( Dublin, April 2018) thanks to the generous funding awarded from Arts Council of Ireland, Dublin City Council as well as a generous support of enterprises engaged in scientific research in Ireland.

Listen to our recent recording


Jacek Wisłocki

Jacek (haute contre tenor) is a much soughtafter soloist and choral singer with many of the major Irish and international ensembles (NKK Zangers, Christ Church Cathedral). He is particularly renowned for his distinguished solo oratorio performances such as Evangelist role both in J.S Bach’s Passions (Kilkenny Arts Festival 2016), and B Minor Mass, along with many cantatas; he premiered A. Part’s Stabat Mater at RTÉ Living Music Festival in Dublin, sung Momo role in Rossi’s Orfeo (with E. Headley in Ireland) and The Rose Tree character in a new John O’Brien’s opera The Nightingale and the Rose (2018). Jacek received an Arts Council of Ireland award to premiere Polish Baroque music (S.S. Szarzyński) in Ireland with his newely founded ensemble Chant21 in Sept 2017. The most recent project of Chant21 included (Dublin City Council funding) rarely performed Italian Baroque cantatas. Jacek made numerous CD and radio recordings for RTÉ, BBC, and Harmonia Mundi. Jacek's future projects include J.S Bach’s  St. John's Passion  concerts under William Christie in Concertgebouw Amsterdam in April 2019.

Theresa Burton

Theresa studied Recorder at Utrecht Conservatorium, with the NUFFIC Scholarship for studies with Leo Meilink, Baldrick Deerenburg, and Heiko ter Schegget. She participated in masterclasses with Sebastien Marc, Renemarie Verhagen, Peter van Heijghen, Marion Verbruggen, Peter Holtslag, Philip Thorby, and Wilbert Hazelzet. Theresa has played in diverse ensembles in the US, Ireland, Israel, UK and the Netherlands in concert series including Utrecht Early Music Festival fringe, Edinburgh festival fringe,Vredenburg, Engelsekerk Amsterdam. Recent concerts include with soprano Aisling Kenny, Marlborough Baroque, Edinburgh festival fringe, Israel tour with Adi Silberberg, and Ensemble Chant21. Theresa has works written for her by several composers including Nuno Corte Real, Jaap Visser and has also improvised for film.


Jerzy Żak

At first he studied classical guitar in Poland and in Spain. Since 1983 he specializes in early music playing historical plucked instruments and leading larger ensemble projects. Has performed with distingished soloists in Poland, also played with the Swiss ‘Le Nations’, and Danish ‘Concerto Copenhagen’; worked for the Warsaw Chamber Opera as a lutenist and music director. In 2016, at the invitation of tenor, Jacek Wisłocki, he became artistic director of the Chant21 ensemble based in Dublin. He edited and directed premiere CD recording of two oratorios: by Alessandro Scarlatti and by Alessandro Melani; also recorded solo lute music by Silvius Leopold Weiss, and a collection of chamber cantatas by Antonio Cesti. His reconstructions of S.L. Weiss Concerti are published in Complete Works of the composer in the series Das Erbe deutscher Musik. He teaches at the Academy of Music in Cracow, Poland.
