Biography

The Choir of The English Concert was formed in 1983 for the first performance in modern times of Rameau's Acante et Cephise. Since then the choir has taken part in numerous recordings, including an award-winning Messiah which became Deutsche Gramophon's best selling CD, and a number of landmark performances, ranging from Purcell King Arthur in Argentina for the Purcell Tercentenary in1995 to a world tour with Bach St Matthew Passion in the Bach Anniversary Year 2000.

In 1996 The English Concert launched a 6-year concert project entitled 'Great Religious Works of the 18th Century' and including, significantly, the first period instrument Messiah at the Salzburg Festival. In 1997 Bach's Mass in B minor was performed in Italy, France, Germany, Austria and at the BBC Proms. The concert series went on to include Mozart's Requiem, Haydn's Creation, Bach's St John Passion and St Matthew Passion and toured throughout Europe and Japan culminating with 2001 Lucerne Festival. The original plan proved so successful that subsequent years saw further performances of the St Matthew Passion, most notably at the 2002 BBC Proms, and a major European tour of Bach's Christmas Oratorio in December last year.

Future plans for The Choir of The English Concert include further performances of Mozart's 'Handel Oratorios' as well as the devlopme t of a smaller vocal consort, as in the Biber Missa Christi Resurgentis later this season.
