Borough Chamber Choir was formed in 2009 and is independent and self-governing. We rehearse at the Blackfriars Settlement, London SE1, on Thursday evenings. The choir gives regular concerts, and engages in other activities such as singing for charity.
Numbering around 30 members, the choir focuses on the small ensemble ‘high art’ repertoire across the historical range from Medieval to Contemporary, occasionally inviting additional singers to join in putting on larger scale works such as Bach’s B Minor Mass (2009), Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610 (2011), Handel’s Israel in Egypt (2013) or 40-part motets (2012).
In July 2015 we sang in the Linbury Studio at the Royal Opera House for the first performance of scenes from a new Opera “Cities of Salt”. In the summers of 2011, 2013 and 2015 we sang a week’s services at St. David’s Cathedral, Pembrokeshire, and will do so again in 2017.
