Welcome to our chamber choir

Welcome to Collegium Musicum of London Chamber Choir. With a regular membership of about 35 singers, the ensemble is centrally based in one of the capital’s most elegant Christopher Wren churches, St James Garlickhythe, in the City of London. Focusing naturally on a cappella repertoire, the choir also collaborates with some of the leading professional soloists and instrumentalists in the country. The choir’s repertoire encompasses sacred music of the Renaissance and Baroque periods as well as music of the nineteenth century, the great secular works of the last 100 years, folksong and popular classics.

CML’s journey down England’s Lanes

A packed house at St James Garlickhythe on Thursday 9th May saw a polished performance by Collegium Musicum of London of English a cappella choral favourites. Highlights included tenor James Moriarty’s sparkling rendition of Paul McCartney’s When I’m Sixty-Four. The choir, under the expert direction of MD Greg Morris brought the house down when they served up a dazzling encore of the Spice Girls’ Wannabe – expertly arranged as an English madrigal.

Audience reaction

‘Very enjoyable evening. The choir were very professional, came across as loving what they do and were very connected to all the songs they sang.’

‘Loved it! Went with friends, one of whom sings in a choir and said how impressive they were. Part of the joy of it was the enjoyment so obvious on the faces of the choir.’

‘The audience paid rapt attention and applauded enthusiastically. A thoroughly enjoyable event.’

‘Another highly polished performance by this choir…a very enjoyable evening.’


 

CML’s Northern Lights dazzle Temple audience

March 9 saw Collegium Musicum of London return to Temple church for a concert of music by northern European composers. A large and appreciative audience was present as the choir gave a polished and inspired performance under the assured direction of its musical director Greg Morris.

‘What a beautiful way to discover some composers who I didn’t know, in a marvellous setting. The Temple Church is a little gem. The choice of musical pieces was exquisite and gave us a sense of serenity thanks to the talented musicians and Collegium Musicum of London Chamber Choir.’ 
– Lucia Hollis

‘Rarely performed music, beautifully executed in the unique and evocative Temple Church, thank you for the great experience.’

– Roberta Faccio
