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 did a whole concert with amazing Scandinavian music. Have a look at our past concerts to get an impression or listen to some of our recordings.

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.

On 3rd February 2024 we are hosting one of our popular Singing Days, where about 100 singers will join us to work on Duruflé’s Requiem for a day. Find more information and register for the Singing Day.

Christmas concert 2nd December 2023

Our Christmas concert will feature joyful French Baroque music in the form of Charpentier’s Messe de Minuit, a mass written in 1694 and based on the melodies of ten French Christmas carols, alongside traditional carols for both choir and audience. There’s sure to be something for everyone.

Why not top up the festive cheer with a mince pie and a glass of mulled wine?

There will be a retiring collection for the Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice.

The concert will be at St. Gabriel’s Pimlico, SW1V2AD.

Tickets are £18.

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!
