The Epiphoni Consort was founded in 2014 by Tim Reader to fill a gap between the amateur and professional tiers of London’s choral circuit. Its members comprise a number of people who sing to a professional standard but have other full-time careers.
The group has won awards in Tenebrae’s prestigious Locus Iste Competition and in the London A Cappella Choir Competition, and has appeared on television on the BBC4 documentary “The Joy of Rachmaninov” and the BBC2 documentary “Terry Pratchett: Back In Black”, singing Tallis’s forty part motet Spem in alium.
The choir’s debut CD, “Sudden Light”, and its follow-up “When Love Speaks” on the Delphian Records label have been received with critical acclaim from Gramophone, Choir and Organ Magazine, BBC Radio 3, BBC Music Magazine and numerous online reviewers.
Recent performances have included Bach’s Mass in B Minor and Singet dem Herrn with City of London Sinfonia, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with Southbank Sinfonia, and a concert performance of Ravel’s ballet Daphnis et Chloé with Kensington Symphony Orchestra.
