English Baroque Choir

A fine choir in London

The English Baroque Choir is one of the finest choirs in London. We perform a wide range of repertoire, from 15th century renaissance, via the masters of baroque music, to the great romantic composers and contemporary music. Our repertoire takes us all around the world with a special focus on British and European masters. We recently performed a whole concert of amazing Scandinavian music. Have a look at our past concerts to get an impression or listen to some of our recordings.

Join the choir

We have exciting plans for 2023 and 2024. As one of the finest choirs in London we have openings in all voice parts and would be delighted to welcome you to the choir. Have a look at what we have to offer if you join the choir and at our upcoming concerts.

Buxtehude – Membra Jesu Nostri 9th March 2024

Save the date! In our spring concert, we will be performing Membra Jesu Nostri by the German baroque composer Dieterich Buxtehude and Cantiones Sacrae by Heinrich Schütz. Buxtehude’s cycle of seven cantatas – a meditation on the body of Christ on the cross – is a masterpiece in beauty, hope and invention. Harmonically daring and wondrously intimate, Membra Jesu Nostri is regarded as one of the finest Passiontide works ever written. Join the English Baroque Choir as we explore this glorious narrative alongside a selection of Schütz’s Cantiones Sacrae together with Endelienta Baroque and the Arculo Consort of Viols.

9th March 2024, 7.30pm

St. James’s Church Sussex Gardens, W2 3UD

Tickets £23, under 30s £15, under 16s £5

Audience reactions

Here are some of the things members of the audience had to say about our St. John Passion concert in April 2022, which was Harry’s first concert with us.

Last night’s soloists were superb, wonderful legato and phrasing, and interpretation, a delight, especially Sam Kibble’s difficult area which he sang with distinction, in my view. And a perfect Evangelist – coping smoothly and effortlessly with the huge vocal and interpretive demands. So also the orchestra, very impressive, managing beautiful ensemble with their fabulous technique. But my happiest memory will be of the choir, singing overall with confidence and attention, responding to Harry.

“I was so keen to come and glad I could. The joy and commitment to the music palpable from your choir and everyone involved.

It was a wonderful concert, so glad we came! Congratulations to the choir and your new MD did a brilliant job. It’s great to see audiences overcoming covid worries and flocking back to support live concerts.”

Peter and I very much enjoyed your concert last night.  The choir made a fine sound, as did the soloists, and you clearly have a great new young conductor! It was a lovely evening.

“Top-notch concert!
