Event Details

London Concord Singers and music director Jessica Norton celebrate the 50th anniversary of the choir's founding in 1966 with a concert at the Priory Church of St John. Under founder music director Malcolm Cottle, London Concord Singers developed a reputation for performing new music alongside classics and new discoveries. For their 50th anniversary Jessica Norton and the choir continue this tradition with a programme which combines three world premieres with works of significance to the choir.

The choir will premiere Thou hast made me endless by Alison Willis, the winner of the choir's 50th Anniversary Composition Competition, plus a new work by the choir's conductor Jessica Norton and Dominus illuminatio mea by Robert Hugill, who has written a number of works for the choir. These new works will be joined by music by Poulenc, Mendelssohn, Byrd, Palestrina and Britten which has played a significant role in the choir's history.

London Concord Singers are an award-winning chamber choir of about 30 mixed voices, based in central London, with a broad-ranging repertoire. The choir was established in 1966 by the conductor, Malcolm Cottle and he remained the Musical Director until his death in 2014.

London Concord Singers have given a number of world, UK and London premieres of works by composers such as John Rutter, Andrzej Panufnik, Richard Rodney Bennett, John McCabe, Kenneth Leighton and Michael Ball, as well as pieces specially written for the choir.

The choir has also given performances of major contemporary pieces such as Alfred Schnittke’s Choral Concerto and Malcolm Williamson’s Requiem for a Tribe Brother. In its 40 year history the choir has performed all of the unaccompanied choral music of Francis Poulenc.
