The music was sublime, at times I literally had goosebumps. We felt uplifted and restored.

Who We Are

Founded in 1999 and led by Andrew Campling, Thames Chamber Choir is an East London choral ensemble that rehearses and stages several concerts and events each year in London and across Britain.

A vibrant and sociable group of around 20 singers, we are based in Stepney and focus on a principally a cappella repertoire of early, renaissance and modern music.

We also sing liturgically and are available for hire.

Andrew Campling

Conductor & Artistic Director

Andrew Campling founded Thames Chamber Choir with a group of enthusiastic singers in 1999. A graduate of Keble College, Oxford, Andrew directs Marcel Sinfonia, London Docklands Singers, and Thames Chamber Choir; and is also chorus master of the Choir of the London School of Economics.

Five CDs of his music have been released, and his works have been performed in venues including St Paul’s Cathedral, the Purcell Room, and the Royal Albert Hall.

Andrew has composed two symphonies, concertos for violin, flute, trumpet, piano and organ, and numerous choral works including In Paradisum (a setting of the Requiem Mass) and Dona nobis pacem (based on the WW1 diaries of his grandfather Canon William Campling).
