Hear us sing

Obviously the best way to hear us singing is by attending a concert, but if you simply can’t wait until the next one, here are a selection of songs from recent performances.

We also have a YouTube channel here.

“Lockdown Choir”, Summer 2020

Sicut Cervus by Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina

Our first go at doing a “virtual choir”. We each recorded ourselves singing our part alone at home, and James mixed the whole lot together.

“Lockdown Two”, November 2020

For a festive treat, we chose to record “Magi Viderunt Stellam(The magi, having seen the star) by  the well-known 16th century composer, Tomás Luis de Victoria.

Again, we all recorded alone in our homes and submitted them to James for audio treatment and mixing.

This time we also recorded videos of ourselves singing the piece with our phones and sent them to John Kennard (one of our tenors) who created this twinkly video…

This was a project created by and for Deutsche Chor London. We and several other British choirs recorded two songs and joined in a mass recording of a specially commissioned piece.  The CD can be purchased from their website.

Here are our contributions.

Richard Johnson memorial

On 31st July 2015 we were deeply honoured to perform Eric Whitacre’s “Sleep” as part of the Memorial Service for the late actor Richard Johnson, at St Paul’s Covent Garden (“The Actors’ Church”).

His daughter created this lovely video accompanied by the recording of our performance.
