The Choir of the London Oratory will fill Black Chapel with select music from major Roman Catholic liturgies.

Internationally renowned as leading exponents of music from the Latin tradition the London Oratory Choir will perform an eclectic tribute, drawn from Gregorian chant and classical polyphony for feasts throughout the year, ranging from deep meditation to brilliant jubilation, and covering a millennium of creativity in sacred music.

The Choir of the London Oratory is the UK’s senior professional Catholic church choir and sings for all the major Latin liturgies at the Oratory. Comprising some of London’s leading ensemble singers, the choir is internationally renowned. Its working repertoire covers all aspects and periods of music for the Latin Rite from Gregorian chant to the present day with special emphasis on 16th and 17th century polyphony and the Mass repertory of the late 18th and 19th centuries.
