Choir of the 21st Century
Choir of the 21st Century

Founding Patron: Sir Peter Maxwell Davies

Conductor: Howard Williams

 

 

CC21 is very sad to announce the death on 14th March 2016 of its founding Patron,

Sir Peter Maxwell Davies.

 

About us

The Choir of the 21st Century is made up of some of London’s most experienced amateur singers, performing a repertoire which is deliberately broad, both sacred and secular, to reflect the depth and richness of the choral music which is our heritage. 

 

The choir’s recordings on the SOMM label include both the Elgar and Kodály versions of The Music Makers, Philip Glass’s Another Look at Harmony–Part IV and Mátyás Seiber a cappella.

 

Recent work has included the Rachmaninov Vespers, Strauss Deutsche Motette, Britten Sacred and Profane, Castelnuovo-Tedesco Romancero Gitano and Frank Martin Songs of Ariel and Mass for Double Choir.

 

In addition to its normal a cappella projects, CC21’s collaborations with the English Chamber Orchestra under Howard Williams – most recently Beethoven’s 9th Symphony in St. Paul’s Cathedral (as pictured below) – have resulted in performances of which MusicalCriticism.Com wrote that it 'would have been difficult to better'.

 

'Right from the start, we know we are in for a treat' Elgar Society Journal

 

The Choir of the 21st Century was a rhythmically rigorous, brightly voiced amateur chorus -- in perfect scale and character for the occasion’. Hilary Finch, Times Online

urgent need for solutions to racism, xenophobia
