Performers

The English Baroque Choir was formed in 1978 and has become one of London’s finest amateur choirs, developing a reputation for musicality, imaginative programming and choral enthusiasm. As its name suggests, the choir’s spiritual home is in the rich music of the Baroque period, with large-scale works by Bach, Handel and Monteverdi regularly appearing in its programmes. However it is equally at ease with repertoire from the 15th century right through to the present day.

The choir regularly performs in St John’s Smith Square, St Martin-in-the-Fields and other premier London venues, receiving plaudits for its professionalism and energy.

Jeremy Jackman’s musical education began as a chorister at St Paul’s Cathedral, and continued at the Royal College of Music and Hull University. He began his career as a freelance countertenor and choral director. He sang throughout Eastern and Western Europe as a soloist, and with ensembles such as the BBC Singers, the BBC Northern Singers, the Alfred Deller Choir, the Tallis Scholars and The Sixteen. In the field of opera he created the part of Fulvio in Banchieri’s La Pazzia Senile and sang the title role in Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice. He was appointed countertenor Lay Clerk at Westminster Cathedral in 1978, under the direction of Stephen Cleobury. Two years later he was invited to join The King’s Singers, succeeding Nigel Perrin as their highest voice, and for the next decade shared their demanding international schedule, performing in the world’s most celebrated concert halls and making countless broadcasts and recordings.
