ABOUT THE PERFORMERS
The Addison Chamber Choir have, along with the Addison Oratorio Choir, performed in major venues in New York, Paris, Barcelona, Krakow, Edinburgh, Cornwall and Ireland ; the Chamber Choir themselves have in recent years given performances at a number of regional festivals, King's Place, the London Festival of Contemporary Church Music, the John Ireland in Chelsea Festival and a number of performances at St Martin-in-the-Fields, as part of the Brandenburg Choral Festival. The choir have developed close working relationships with a number of leading contemporary composers and have had works written for them by Gavin Bryars, Cecilia McDowall, Gabriel Jackson, Edwin Roxburgh, Richard Causton and Howard Skempton, amongst many others.
The Brandenburg Baroque Soloists, run by Robert Porter in conjunction with Brandenburg Sinfonia and Brandenburg Brass, regularly appear at London venues including St Martin-in-the-Fields and St John's, Smith Square. The soloists are made up of Sinfonia players who play on both modern and original instruments, and some of the finest period instrument specialists drawn from the same pool as the Academy of Ancient Music, Gabrieli Consort and Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. Their repertoire includes instrumental works as well as Baroque choral works such as Handel's Messiah and Bach's Passions.
