About

Founded in 2014, with the aim of providing a project-based chamber choir to singers of an advanced training but who, in the majority of cases, pursue other primary careers.

Now winners of Tenebrae’s Locus Iste competition and runners up in the London International A Cappella Choir Competition, The Epiphoni Consort is establishing its reputation as one of the best choirs around.

Since our debut performance at the Gresham Centre in April 2014, we have embarked on an ambitious and eclectic programme of activity including Strauss’s fearsome Deutsche Motette in 20 parts at St John’s Smith Square and a concert-play commemorating the centenary of the 1914 Christmas Truce. In 2015 we have been invited to appear at festivals including The Brandenburg Choral Festival, the London Festival of Contemporary Church Music and the London International A Cappella Choir (LIACC) competition. In 2016 we made our BBC TV debut in a documentary on the life of Sergei Rachmaninov.

Hire us

Our singers have performed at private functions from Buckingham Palace to Inveraray Castle, and recorded on labels for Naxos, Deutsche Grammophon and Decca. We are particularly interested to hear from producers working in classical crossover.

In December 2014 we sang Christmas carols for a reception at Cliveden House, the residence made famous by Nancy Astor's notorious parties and further still by the Profumo Affair.

2015 engagements have included weddings at St Mark's, Dalston, the largest parish church in London, and Holy Trinity Blythburgh, "the cathedral of the marshes", and the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens Prom in July.

Collaborations: orchestras & choral societies

We are really interested in collaborations with orchestras or choral societies from London and surrounding areas. If you have a big work you'd like to put on and need a semi-chorus or full choir for it, we are available for hire.
