Elizabeth Baber Weaver has been praised by the Washington Post for her “angelic brightness and dedication” and the “remarkable clarity” of her declamation, and the New York Times called her singing “truly lovely.”
She has appeared as a soloist with the Masterwork Chorus, Voices of Ascension, Bach Vespers at Holy Trinity, TENET, Elm City Consort, Ensemble Viscera, the New York Consort of Viols, Mountainside Baroque, Music in the Somerset Hills, Guido’s Ear, Hesperus, Parthenia, Ex Umbris, and in the revival of The Play of Daniel at the Cloisters.
Elizabeth has performed and recorded masterpieces of Renaissance music as a member of the vocal chamber group Pomerium. She has also appeared as a guest artist with the acclaimed quartet New York Polyphony, including their Grammy-nominated album Sing thee Nowell. She was a longtime member of the New York Continuo Collective, for which she also served as a vocal coach.
With her duo partner and husband, lutenist Charles Weaver, she has created recitals praised for their “impeccable performances” and “imagination in programming.” The duo is currently exploring private devotional music from English recusant culture, especially the manuscripts of Edward Paston (1550–1630).
Elizabeth is Assistant Director of Music at St. Mary’s Church, Norwalk, CT. She is also a member of the professional St. Mary’s Schola Cantorum, which recently released the world premiere recording of the 16th-century Mass Christe Jesu by William Rasar.
