The Pepys Ensemble

A flexible ensemble of two to eight players available for concerts and other functions.


The Pepys Ensemble
"I do consider that [music] is all the pleasure I live for in the world, and the greatest I can ever expect in the best of my life."
Music [is] a science peculiarly productive of a pleasure that no state of life, publick or private, secular or sacred: no difference of age or season; no temper of mind or condition of health exempt from present anguish; nor, lastly, distinction of quality, renders either improper, untimely, or unentertaining.
From Pepys' correspondence

We specialize in music for special events!

Music during and around the wedding ceremony will contribute to a happy and relaxed atmosphere – let professional musicians from The Pepys Ensemble set the scene for your special day!


Would you like to enter married life to the beautiful sound of Gabriel’s Oboe? (oboe and piano). Wagner’s Bridal March? (violin and piano). La Rejouissance by Handel? (The Mallard Oboe Trio). Arrival of the Queen of Sheba? (The Pepys String Quartet). How about A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square during the signing of the register? Or, maybe, Massenet’s beautiful Meditation for violin and piano? Trumpet and organ/piano pieces sound amazing in a church!


We’ll help you to create a unique event according to your wishes.


Suggestions also available for drinks receptions, wedding breakfasts and funerals.
