Oxford Baroque is a vocal and instrumental ensemble dedicated to the performance of music from the seventeenth to eighteenth centuries. Whereas most groups performing similar programmes tend to bring together players and singers late on in the rehearsal process, Oxford Baroque is committed to forming a tight artistic bond between the core singers and players from the start, allowing them to construct a strong sense of gesture, central to the rhetoric required to best perform baroque music.
They are directed by Jeremy Summerly, conductor, musicologist, broadcaster, and recording producer. He is the founder-director of the Oxford Camerata and the Royal Academy Consort, and a lecturer at the Royal Academy of Music.
