Baroque Music in Salisbury

Founded by David Morgan, the group was set up in 2010 to enable local players (and some colleagues from further afield) to share their passion for the music of Bach and Handel and their contemporaries with audiences in historic settings.

Using copies of instruments of the period and authentic playing style, the group brings to its audience a sense of intimacy and style difficult to achieve with larger forces and modern, heavier instruments.Salis_Baroque_Logo_(Baroque_Violin)_Grayscale

Salisbury has a historic connection with key figures in the baroque musical world.  James Harris (1709 – 1780, educated in Salisbury, inherited Malmesbury House in the Close) organised regular subscription concerts and music festivals in Salisbury for nearly 50 years.  He introduced his friend and composer George Frederic Handel into Salisbury society, and Handel attended a concert at Malmesbury House, believed to be his first performance in England.
