Founded in 2014, with the aim of providing a project-based chamber choir to singers of a professional training but who, in the majority of cases, primarily pursue other careers.
Now winners of Tenebrae’s Locus Iste competition, runners up in the London International A Cappella Choir Competition, and signed to Delphian Records, 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 were 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 and recorded our debut CD, Sudden Light, on the Delphian record label (released July 2017).
We are pleased to hear from accomplished singers who are interested in auditioning and:
Our singers have performed at special functions up and down the country, from Buckingham Palace to Inveraray Castle.
In addition to our regular concerts, Epiphoni has performed for functions at Cliveden House, Wentworth Golf Club, the Barbican theatre and the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens Prom.
We have sung for a number of wedding ceremonies -- at St Mark's, Dalston, the largest parish church in London, and Holy Trinity Blythburgh, "the cathedral of the marshes" and All Saints Marlow.
The choir frequently collaborates with orchestras and choral societies from London and surrounding areas -- if you are interested to work with us please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Excellent interpretation ... real verve and commitment ... riveting”
- Peter Phillips, The Tallis Scholars
“ It was a pleasure to sing and work alongside the excellent choir Epiphoni ... a great sense of phrasing and ensemble, fabulous intonation and a strong, clear, focused tone in all voice parts of the choir. Tim's collection of singers become something really rather special under his direction.”
- Nigel Short, Tenebrae
“It's so obvious right from the minute you start singing that you have a passion for choral singing, and excellence in choral singing. It's a very vibrant sound.”
- Paul Phoenix, PurpleVocals, The King's Singers
