Collegium Musicum of London - with a regular membership of about 30 singers - is a chamber choir based in Clerkenwell, London. Focusing naturally on a capella repertoire, the choir also collaborates with some of the leading professional soloists and instrumentalists in the country. The choir's repertoire encompasses sacred music of the Renaissance and Baroque periods as well as music of the nineteenth century and the great secular works of the last 100 years.
Cml's next concert, AMORE, continues the choir's tradition of short, early evening acapella springtime concerts, and is the third outing for this programme.
AMORE, featuring music by Purcell, Monteverdi, Lassus, Elgar, Whitacre, Irving Berlin and Lennon and McCartney, was performed in Clerkenwell on March 13th and at Bourn Chuch in Cambridgeshire two days later. On April 24th, the concert will be reprised as part of the Brandenburg Choral Festival, at Corpus Christi church in Covent Garden
The choir is at present on the lookout for new singers - especialy altos and tenors. And there's a special deal for the under 25s - rather than the usual subscription rates, pay just £10 per concert to sing with the choir.
