The choir

SJSS steps 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”, was released on Delphian Records in 2017 to critical acclaim from Gramophone, Choir and Organ Magazine, BBC Radio 3 and BBC Music Magazine. 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.
