Londinium, directed by Andrew Griffiths, is one of London's most versatile chamber choirs, having a reputation for diverse, imaginative and eclectic programming across the centuries with an emphasis on unjustly neglected or rarely-performed works. The choir's critically acclaimed debut album of 20th-century British choral music, 'The Gluepot Connection', was released in March 2018 by SOMM Recordings.
THE GRAND TOUR
Friday 12th July at 7.30pm
St John’s Waterloo
Inspired by the traditional 'grand tour' made by young British aristocrats from the seventeenth century onwards, Londinium embarks on an intrepid journey around some of Europe's foremost musical centres. On our travels we encounter a dazzling array of repertoire - everything from the polyphony of Renaissance Rome to the polychoral splendour of Venice, the Neapolitan Baroque, echoes of Wagner's Tristan, the seductive soundworld of fin-de-siècle Vienna, the sophistication of Debussy, and the music of our own time.

We are delighted to announce that our debut CD, ‘The Gluepot Connection’, is a MusicWeb International Recording of the Year for 2018, one of only eight to receive two nominations.

"This is a wonderful collection of English music for voices, flawlessly performed by the Londinium chamber choir conducted by Andrew Griffiths.” (Ian Lace)
