"If music be the food of love, play on!" - William Shakespeare

The London Quartet

The London Quartet is one of Britain’s longest established vocal ensembles. Since they became widely known in the early nineteen-eighties they have mastered a wide array of musical styles which they have taken to a worldwide audience, always remaining true to their core vocal texture which is unmistakably rooted in the great English choral tradition. The London Quartet’s origins at Cambridge University, where they were founded as Cantabile, lay in revue as well as in music, and their flair for the stage continues to keep them in demand in theatres and cabaret as well as in concert halls and at festivals; indeed, they featured for over a year in London’s West End. They have appeared in an enormous variety of venues, singing programmes encompassing early polyphony, jazz and contemporary music. Although essentially an a cappella group they have appeared with a range of leading artists and ensembles, from big band to symphony orchestra. “Mark, Mike, Richard and Steven have few opportunities to play cricket, but take every opportunity to sing about it, which they do wonderfully well. They are now synonymous with the game’s music.”
