The Sussex Camerata was originally formed in 1984 as a string quartet, but sometimes includes other instrumentalists to widen the repertoire. The ensemble is well-known in the south of England and regularly performs in London. The group has been highly acclaimed for its committed and lively playing, as well as their clear enthusiam and obvious enjoyment in playing music together.

Rita French plays an Italian violin made by David Tecchler, an Austrian who worked in Rome, in 1741.

Martin Cannings' violin, also Italian, was made by Eugene Degano in 1886.

Lynn Whitley's viola was made by herself when in San Francisco on a gap year.

Jane Taunton's viola is English, made by Willian Forster Junior in 1793.

Christopher Cooper's cello is French and probably made by Paul Bailly in 1889.
