The Epiphoni Consort was founded in 2014 as a project-based chamber choir for singers of advanced training but who, in the majority of cases, pursue other primary careers. In 2015 the Consort appeared at festivals including The Brandenburg Choral Festival, the London Festival of Contemporary Church Music and the London International A Cappella Choir Competition (LIACCC). Before a jury chaired by Peter Phillips of the Tallis Scholars, Epiphoni proceeded through the heats to the Grand Final, where it was commended for its ‘excellent interpretation and atmosphere’ of the sixteenth century repertoire. The Consort went on to take second prize.
In November 2015 Epiphoni joined Tenebrae on stage at St James’, Spanish Place, having been awarded first prize in the Locus Iste competition. In January 2016 it made its BBC TV debut in a documentary about the life and work of Sergei Rachmaninoff.
Epiphoni Consort’s debut recording with Delphian of choral music by David Bednall will be released in July 2017.
