Trinity Baroque is an English group of musicians who focus on the Renaissance and Baroque periods. Founded at Trinity College, Cambridge, they are formed of a pool of 6-8 singers, sometimes expanding to larger vocal and instrumental forces. The ensemble has formed close relationships with the music of Heinrich Schütz, Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck and Johann Sebastian Bach, and focus on one-to-a-part performances. Their programmes usually blend sacred and secular music, and are in a style which often joins the chosen pieces into a semi-theatrical sequence on a particular theme or season.
They perform at early music festivals throughout the UK and Europe (e.g. Utrecht, Spitalfields, Flanders, Seville) and occasionally experiment with contemporary music (premiere of Umbra Sumus by the British composer Terry Mann).
