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 spring tour to Berlin

Collegium Musicum of London reprised its England’s Lanes concert at two contrasting venues in Berlin in May: the majestic Marian Church in the city centre and the smaller, more intimate, French church in nearby Potsdam (pictured above.) A fun time was had by all and the German audiences were very appreciative!

Donate to CML

You can now donate to your favourite chamber choir by clicking the button below. CML ticket prices are kept low through our members’ subscriptions – and our special low subs rate for the under-25s helps attract younger singers.

In January 2020, CML moved its base to St James Garlickhythe in the City – resulting in a huge increase in rehearsal hire costs.

Please help with a donation – no matter how small.
