Join us for our popular Christmas concert with festive choral music and your favourite carols.
Once again EBC has come up with the perfect cocktail to kick off your Christmas celebrations. We offer the familiar (‘Jingle bells’, and some carols you can join in); well-loved choral items (including Sweelinck, Pearsall and two by John Rutter); the quirky (John Gardner’s take on ‘The ‘Holly and the Ivy’); a new carol by our conductor, Jeremy Jackman; and Bob Chilcott’s version of ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’, which just about covers every possible ingredient in one and adds the cherry on the stick.
Jingle all the way to St Stephen’s for your share of this heady mixture!
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.
We recently performed Bach’s St Matthew Passion at St John’s Smith Square, with our patron, Dame Emma Kirkby, as soloist.
In 2013 the choir commissioned a new work, Psalm-Cantata by John McCabe CBE, and proudly gave the premiere performance in St John’s Smith Square.
