Bellot Ensemble

As a group we pride ourselves on the energy and passion we give each and every performance along with our style specific improvisations. The group specialise in 16th and 17th century repertoire with research into written divisions and the contextual texts of the time. This practical research is always greatly influenced by our work with talented singers in our regular collaborations with consorts, choirs and opera societies.

Bellot Ensemble has been selected as one four groupsto take part in the Brighton Early Music Festival live scheme 2023/24. Bellot Ensemble is also working extensively with conductor and organist Nick Houghton performing varied repertoire with several Sussex Choral and Opera societies. We will be touring across the UK performing John Frederick Lampe’s “The Dragon of Wantley” with New Sussex Opera in 2024.

The grouphas also been selected for the semifinal of the Loire Valley International Early Music Competition in 2024, and recently performed a programme of early 17th century Italian repertoire at the Utrecht Early Music Festival. We are also a Featured Artist in 2024 in the Overstrand Early Music Festival, and will be collaborating with Norwich Baroque for a concert alongside a production of Dido and Aeneas at the festival.

Bellot Ensemble have performed at such venues as St George’s Hanover Square and the Chapel of St Peter and St Paul alongside notable conductors such as Ralph Allwood MBE. The ensemble has also performed the UK premier of the reconstructed Telemann cantata “Erklingt Durch Gedoppelt Annehmliche Töne" Cantata as part of their residency at St Mary-at-Hill in London.
