The English Baroque Choir is an amateur choir based in London, England. It performs music in a wide variety of styles from the Renaissance to contemporary music, but specialises (as the name suggests) in music of the Baroque era.

The choir was founded in 1978 under the direction of conductor Leon Lovett, who remained the musical director for 22 years. He was succeeded in September 2000 by Jeremy Jackman, a former member of the King's Singers.

The choir performs mainly in London, in venues including St John's Smith Square, St Martin-in-the-Fields and St James's Church, Piccadilly. It also travels throughout the home counties and Europe, having performed in Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Poland.
