CC21 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 have resulted in performances of which MusicalCriticism.com wrote that it 'would have been difficult to better'.

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
