Yorkshire Baroque Soloists
The Yorkshire Baroque Soloists
(YBS) was formed in 1973 by Peter Seymour to perform a repertoire from the 17th and 18th centuries for forces ranging from chamber to orchestral size. The group has performed and recorded in most European countries and forms the basis of the Baroque and Classical parts of York Early Music Festival.
Much of the orchestra's work has been with Yorkshire Bach Choir. Past performances have included Bach's Christmas Oratorio
, Mozart's Requiem
and Mass in C minor
, Cantatas for the Feast of St. Michael by Bach and Monteverdi's Vespers
