The City of London Choir was founded in 1963 and, in the words of The Times, is a ‘leader among non-professional choruses’ . Under the inspirational leadership of Hilary Davan Wetton, it undertakes a busy annual programme, performing at the Barbican and in a well-regarded season at St John’s, Smith Square, with leading professional orchestras, instrumentalists and soloists. The choir also appears regularly at the Royal Albert Hall, on the Southbank, at St Martin-in-the-Fields and outside London. The CLC has earned an enviable reputation, both in the national media and amongst audiences, for its distinctive youthful sound and the quality of its performances. With Hilary Davan Wetton, it has developed a particular reputation for English music of the twentieth century, but its repertoire is broad. The choir’s first two recordings on the Naxos label received wide critical acclaim: In Terra Pax: A Christmas Anthology (8.572102) reached No. 2 in the Gramophone Classical Chart; and Beethoven’s Der glorreiche Augenblick (8.572783) received a five star review in BBC Music Magazine.
