We are deeply saddened by the loss of Mary Marshall to cancer.  Mary was a founder member of the English Baroque Choir and we celebrated our 40th anniversary this year.
Mary’s dedication to the choir has been remarkable.  For a number of years she has been an integral part of our planning as repertoire advisor, working closely with our music director.  She has ensured choir members are informed of music requirements and other details for performances and that our administration of the choir runs smoothly. Mary has been hugely involved in the production of flyers and printed programmes and would spot everything when proof-reading. She has been our archivist – our choir archives are undoubtedly second to none.  Her dedication to the choir even during her illness has been astounding – still very much involved in planning and getting things done – though sadly she wasn’t well enough to attend the recent 40th anniversary party that she had helped to organise.
Above all she was a lovely person; her love for and dedication to the choir an example to us all.
We shall miss her very much and we express our condolences to her husband James and all her family and friends.


The English Baroque Choir is one of the finest amateur choirs you will find in London.

We perform a wide range of repertoire, from the 15th century right through to the present day, in intelligent, well-structured concert programmes.

Registration is now open for our every popular singing day, which will be on Saturday 2nd February and features Mozart’s Great Mass in C minor.
