Helen Barber is a versatile singer with an immense breadth of experience, a range of over three octaves, and a rare adaptable timbre.

Originally a choral singer, she now performs as a soloist with various choirs and choral societies and has performed in large choirs and small ensembles in many of the country's finest churches and cathedrals, including Kings College Chapel Cambridge, Durham Cathedral, Ely Cathedral, Eton College Chapel and Beverley Minster.

As well as performing fourteenth-century polyphony with medieval music group Misericordia (focussing especially on the music of Guillaume de Machaut), and renaissance song with the ensemble Lachrymae, Helen Barber also sings programmes of early twentieth-century music accompanied by the Bulgarian pianist Venera Bojkova, and sings and submits (she is also a composer) compositions for Durham University's Contemporary Music Ensemble.
