Eboracum Baroque

Eboracum Baroque’s Autumn and Winter season is an ambitious programme of events that will feature high quality concerts including dazzling choral works and intimate chamber music recitals.

 

Eboracum Baroque is an ensemble of young professional singers and instrumentalists, described as ‘Spectacular’ by Classic FM. The group was formed in 2012 by Chris Parsons at the University of York and has performed across the UK and Europe in prestigious venues and festivals including Senate House, Cambridge, The Temple Church, London and Christuskirche, Hannover. As well as their concert performances, they have given fully staged performances of Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas and Handel’s Acis and Galatea.

 

 

The ensemble performs many famous works from across the Renaissance and Baroque period. They have a particular specialism in English music from the 17th and 18th Century and they endeavour to champion lesser-known English composers from the period. In January 2015 Eboracum Baroque recorded their first CD Music for Wimpole Hall, which was funded by the National Trust and Arts Council England. The CD features music by English Baroque composer Thomas Tudway (1650-1726) and was recorded at Wimpole Hall near Cambridge, where Tudway worked from 1714-1726. It was described by The Guardian as ‘Stylish Choral Singing and playing.’ Their second CD Sounds of Suffolk was released in November 2018 and features forgotten music from 18th century Suffolk including violin sonatas by Joseph Gibbs and music from Ickworth House.

 

They perform at a number of National Trust estates across the UK, including Wimpole Hall, Oxburgh Hall and Canons Ashby where they present programmes unique to the history of each property. The group have also given performances at the famous Orchard Tea Garden in Grantchester.
