An Early Music Ensemble

About Kammerchor London

Originally created for the performance of Bach Cantatas sung one voice per part with minimal instrumental accompaniment, we have grown to a larger group with expanded repertoire possibilities from the Renaissance and Baroque periods. Performers can change for each event. New voices and instruments are always welcome, as we try to give as many musicians as possible a chance to perform this fabulous music!

Kammerchor's unofficial mandate is to perform early music in an intimate chamber setting, to provide opportunities for local professional-calibre musicians, and with a donations-based admittance to make it easily accessible to all residents of London.

Audience donations help promote the continuance of this type of performance in the London area. Kammerchor is not a registered charity. It is purely fed by love of the music, working with musicians of like mind, and performing for an appreciative audience. We are pleased to be accepted as an outreach program at our host venue, New St. James Presbyterian Church, and through them we are able to issue tax receipts for all donations.

Kammerchor London is the 2020 Forest City London Music Awards recipient in the Classical Choir category.

Leçons de Ténèbres

April 13, 2022
7:00 pm

Sopranos Ariel Harwood-Jones and Stacey Clark perform Couperin's sublime lament Leçons de Ténèbres. Supported by organist Nathan Nykor and Joseph Phillips on gamba. Written for the liturgies of Holy Week, this collection of three lessons has each verse preceded by a melisma on the first letter of the Hebrew text. The last lesson, where the two voices perform superb appoggiatura, ornaments, dissonances and vocalizing, is considered one of the undisputed peaks of Baroque vocal music.

This presentation is partially funded by the London Arts Council and Harris Funeral Home. Donations would be gratefully received to help support the ongoing work of this ensemble.
