Asteria is a vocal ensemble that specializes in historically informed performances of medieval and renaissance music, based on extensive research with original source material. Their repertoire is anchored in the 15th century chanson repertoire, including noted composers such as Du Fay and Antoine Busnoys.

Founded in 2003, Asteria consists of Sylvia Rhyne, soprano, and Eric Redlinger, tenor and lute. They are based in Brooklyn, New York.
