Sixteen Eighty Five ~ music from the baroque ... and before

The group Sixteen Eighty Five is based in Lincoln and perform in Lincolnshire and wider afield. We are committed to presenting high quality performances of music from Bach and Handel's time but are also interested in and influenced by music from the times before this.

We take an active interest in performing our music in a style which would be recognised by the composers and audiences of the time. This includes playing without vibrato and decorating the music appropriately.

As well as playing in concerts we are available for weddings, corporate events and similar occasions.
