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 by SOMM Recordings.
THE HOUR GLASS
Saturday 2nd February at 7.30pm, St James’s Sussex Gardens
Londinium draws together a fascinating selection of music exploring Time and its passing. Highlights include the American Irving Fine's virtuosic suite The Hour-Glass, rarely heard on this side of the Atlantic, and the world première of I saw eternity by the award-winning young composer Barnaby Martin, alongside works by such varied figures as Byrd, Chilcott, Ligeti, Pärt and Stanford.

“Probably my favourite disc of the year. Such an interesting programme and a brilliant concept for a disc. Favourite works such as 'Mater Ora Filium' receive powerful performances with revelatory Lutyens in the mix as well.” (Nick Barnard)
"This is a wonderful collection of English music for voices, flawlessly performed by the Londinium chamber choir conducted by Andrew Griffiths.” (Ian Lace)
