Manchester’s very own expert period-instrument ensemble

Experience the delights of Baroque Music

As the year draws to a close we look back with pleasure on our Summer Baroque & Beyond series, and continue to enjoy the reviews of Music for French Kings. We have been privileged to work with our partner choirs and have really appreciated the return to live music-making.

Looking ahead, 2023 will begin with our Baroque & Beyond mini-series, this time in Derbyshire and Lancashire! See here for dates and booking links. Thanks to Continuo Foundation and the Duchy of Lancaster for their generosity in funding this series.

Remember you can join our mailing list or follow us on social media to keep up with our news. Music for French Kings is available to order as a CD or MP3 file here.

From choirs we've recently worked with

It was a delight for the choir to sing to such glorious accompaniment. The ornamentation, the trills, - the “baroqueness” of it all, just lifted our game, and we sang our very best and rose to the challenge.
Thank you to you and the whole of Baroque In The North for such fine playing which really helped to make last night a super performance of an incredible masterpiece.
A real pleasure to work with you all again.
It was fabulous listening to your wonderful orchestra last night.
