Cambridge Baroque Camerata (Period Instruments Ensemble)

Founded: 1984, Cambridge, England

The Cambridge Baroque Camerata was founded in 1984 by its director, the British harpsichordist Jonathan Hellyer Jones, to perform the music of the 17th and 18th centuries on period instruments.

Since its foundation the group has toured England and Scotland giving regular concerts in Cambridge and London in programmes using from two to 30 players. More recently the Camerata has toured in France where it has begun to establish itself as an ensemble with style and sensitivity, whether on TV and radio or in concerts. Both in the UK and France the Camerata has collaborated with choirs in oratorio performances, providing firm but transparent support.

The Camerata has issued 4 CD’s.
