Giotto Nativity

O Magnum Mysterium

For our December concert at St Martin Ludgate, 40 Ludgate Hill, London EC4M 7DE, we look forward to the Nativity with two contrasting settings of O Magnum Mysterium by Palestrina and the 20th-century French composer Pierre Villette. We also celebrate William Byrd with a performance of his Mass for Four Voices, written in the 1590s for use at clandestine Mass celebrations in recusant households. The programme is completed with 16th century composer Antoine Brumel's gloriously celebratory Laudate Dominum, originally written for the Sistine Chapel. See the Poster

Our Christmas concert is dedicated to the memory of Stephen Finch, our friend, tenor and choir archivist, who sang with us for many years and is sorely missed.

London Concord Singers is a friendly amateur chamber choir directed by , Jessica Norton and give three main concerts per year.

Rachmaninoff's All Night Vigil

For our Easter concert we joined forces with East London Chorus to present one of the iconic works for unaccompanied choir from the 20th century. Conducted by Jessica Norton, the combined forces of the East London Chorus and London Concord Singers performed Rachmaninoff's All Night Vigil (Vespers) on his 150th anniversary at St Mary's Church, West Kensington. Our video shows two minutes of highlights from the event.

London Concord Singers' Archive

London Concord Singers was founded by Malcolm Cottle in 1966 and so the choir's archive spans some 56 years. Thanks to one of our members, this archive has been digitised and is available to browse on our Archive page. Here you can see which works we have performed, and where, along with looking at early concert programmes and posters.
