Welcome to the German Choir of London!
The German Choir of London is the choir of choice if you are looking for a group of singers who rehearse and perform in German. The choir was founded in 2009 at the German Christuskirche in London. We are around forty singers from different nations who share a common interest in music, the German language and culture.
The repertoire is predominantly German music by Bach, Brahms and Beethoven, Schütz and Schumann, and many more – but we also get involved in more modern projects and mix our repertoire up with English music. The focus of our rehearsals is on expression, language and historically appropriate musical interpretation. Concert venues have included the Hampton Court Palace, Queen’s Gallery in Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, St Paul’s Cathedral and Notre Dame Paris.
We were recently featured in 'Choir & Organ', click here to read the full story.
"The singers understand the nuances of the text, images in the poetry and other cultural references, which helps bring out a deeper meaning in the music."
- Barbara Höfling, Musical Director
"But [the choir] is no narrow celebration of German culture. A key feature of Höfling is to find imaginative themes and programmes for concerts and, wherever possible, present these in unusual venues."
- David Blackwell, Choir and Organ
