The Composer's Words
"Where it is marked grave, I don't mean melancholy; where andante, not quickly, but pleasing. Where allegro, not rushing; where allegrissimo, so that it doesn't trouble the singer nor choke the words..."

Jamie Hey took up the postion of principal cellist of the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra in 2002, as well as being the cellist of chacona from its inception in 1997. After studies on modern cello at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music, he became a regular member of the Queensland Philharmonic Orchestra, and of the Badinerie Players, the original instrument ensemble in his home town of Brisbane.

As a continuo player, he has accompanied many leading international singers of baroque music, including Emma Kirkby, Graham Pushee, Derek Lee Ragin, Sara MacLiver, Jane Edwards, Kate Eckersley, and James Sanderson.
In 2002 he was the recipient of the Deanís Medal for outstanding achievement at the Newcastle Conservatorium; he also undertook advanced study in Australia and Japan with acclaimed baroque/classical cellist Hidemi Suzuki.
