Scholars Baroque Ensemble (Vocal & Instrumental Ensemble)

Originally founded under the name: The Scholars: 1969 - London, England
Under the name: The Scholars Baroque Ensemble: 1987 - London, England

The Scholars Baroque Ensemble (= SBE) was founded in 1987 by David van Asch with the idea of complementing the "a capella" work of the vocal quartet The Scholars. This group, consisting also of the soprano Kym Amps, counter-tenor Angus Davidson and tenor Robin Doveton, has had worldwide success during the last twenty years.

The members of The Scholars Baroque Ensemble are all specialists in the field of Baroque music and play original instruments (or copies) using contemporary techniques. Singers and players work together without a Director to produce their town versions of great baroque masterworks such as the St. John Passion (BWV 245) by J.S. Bach, the 1610 Vespers by Monteverdi, The Fairy Queen by Purcell and the Messiah and Acis and Galatea by George Frideric Handel, all of which are being released by Naxos.
