Eboracum Baroque

Is an ensemble of young professional singers and instrumentalists at the start of their classical music careers. The group was formed in 2012 by Chris Parsons at the University of York and the Royal College of Music and has performed all across the UK and Europe in prestigious venues and festivals including Senate House, Cambridge, The Temple Church, London and Chris- tuskirche, Hannover. As well as their concert performances, they have given fully staged perfor- mances of Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas and Handel’s Acis and Galatea. 

Whilst performing music from across the Renaissance and Baroque periods, the ensemble has a par- ticular specialism in English music from the 17th and 18th Century. In January 2015 Eboracum Baroque recorded their first CD which was funded by the National Trust and Arts Council England. The CD features forgotten music by the English Baroque composer Thomas Tudway (1650-1726), and was recorded at Wimpole Hall near Cambridge where Tudway worked from 1714-1726. It was de- scribed by The Guardian as “Stylish Choral Singing and playing.” They endeavour to champion for- gotten English composers from the period whilst still performing many famous works. Their 2nd 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.
