Bellot Ensemble Group Picture


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 groups

to 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 group

has 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.
