Not only is period performance group Eboracum Baroque returning to live performances with audiences, but they have a new disc out. The result of a successful Crowdfunding campaign, their recording of Handel's Messiah conducted by the group's artistic director Chris Parsons, will be launched with three performances of Messiah by candlelight during December in Great Malvern Priory, Great St Mary's Church, Cambridge, and St Andrew's Church, Wimpole, all in aid of Cancer Research UK.

Their busy Autumn season also includes more Handel, his Dixit Dominus is paired with Vivaldi's Gloria and an oboe transcription of one of his violin concertos in Cambridge (23/10/2021, Great St Mary’s, Cambridge). And their Baroque Christmas programme, which features music by Telemann, Bach, and Charpentier will be performed in York (3/12/2021, York Mansion House), Stamford (4/12/2021, St Martin’s Church, Stamford) and Norwich (21/12/2021, St John’s Church, Norwich).

And if you can't make any of these, then An Eboracum Christmas will be released online on 23 December on YouTube and Facebook, featuring a variety of seasonal pieces including some choral performances filmed at Canons Ashby Priory in 2021.
