Hi Edward,

I don't think there's a direct BioPerl interface to Ensembl, but BioMart at
Ensembl itself will get you sequences (and lots of other things if you want)
given a list of Ensembl IDs.

Note that as of this writing, the Ensembl BioMart server appears to be down
temporarily.

If you want to be able to get Ensembl sequences from a program, there's the
Ensembl API:
