She has sung title roles in Handel’s Acis and Galatea, Handel’s Semele, Cyril Rootham’s Andromeda, Scarlatti's La Giuditta, and Cavalli's La Calisto, for Brighton Early Music Festival, Cantata Dramatica, and New Chamber Opera.

Lucinda enjoys performing with ensembles and vocal consorts including the Sixteen, the BBC Singers, Sansara, Fieri Consort, London Voices and The Tallis Scholars, with whom she has performed in Taiwan, Germany (including at the Elbphilharmonie) and across the USA. She is a member of the Choir of the Brompton Oratory, directed by Patrick Russill.

"Lucinda Cox made a particular impression, with her clear, focused tone... she shone in her solo arias, duetting gracefully with the obbligato flute and two oboi da caccia"
