About

Thames Chamber Choir is a group of around 20 singers who live, work and socialise in and around East London.

The choir was founded in 1999 by Andrew Campling and a small group of music-loving friends to sing a broad repertiore of a capella choral music, particularly favouring works by English renaissance composers.


Two or three concerts a year are staged, mostly in London but the choir has also performed concerts at venues in Sussex, Kent, Suffolk, Birmingham, Bristol, North Wales, Perthshire and even Baden-Württemberg in Germany. The choir also regularly sings liturgically for St James Garlickhythe in Billingsgate.

Recent repertoire includes works by Hildegard von Bingen, Hieronymus Praetorius, Thomas Tallis, William Byrd, Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, J S Bach, Anton Bruckner, William Henry Harris, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Benjamin Britten, Elizabeth Poston, Alfred Schnittke, James Macmillan, Jonathan Dove, Uģis Prauliņš, Brian Cook, Cecilia McDowall, Eric Whitacre, Kerry Andrew and Andrew Campling - to name but a few!
