The choir of St Paul’s Herne Hill

Choral Evensong is a distinctive form of Evening Prayer used by the Church of England. It was developed by Thomas Cranmer from the medieval Latin offices of Vespers and Compline and has remained largely unchanged since 1549. Evensong is based on parts of the Bible and it is traditionally sung mostly by a choir, with the congregation invited to participate in some spoken parts and sing the hymns.

EVERYONE is very welcome to come and enjoy this service in the beautiful St Paul’s Church, whatever your own sense of faith or none. There will be refreshments afterwards.

The Cambria Choir in Herne Hill

The Cambria Choir

The Cambria Choir are South London’s popular non-auditioning community choir. The choir’s name is from The Cambria in Loughborough Junction, where they rehearse every Monday. They sing three times a year at the Cambria, plus they are regulars at the local Ruskin Park Summer fete. They sing every year in Rottingdean at the Queen Victoria. They are fearlessly directed by Sarah Fisher and Lucy Harrower, who write their own SATB arrangements of a variety of pop, jazz and rock songs.

We meet at Maudsley Hospital, Denmark Hill, SE5 8AZ, led by our professional Music Director. Here, in a friendly environment, service users, carers, friends and families, and members of the local community come together to enjoy singing. Our repertoire is an eclectic mix of rock, pop, soul, and traditional folk songs from around the world. We have performed at Dulwich Picture Gallery, Ruskin Park, Southbank Voice Lab, Thames Reach Employment Agency, Peckham, and in Anxiety Fanfare at the Wigmore Hall and Voices Now at the Roundhouse.

London Humanist Choir

London Humanist Choir

The London Humanist Choir are a non-religious mixed-ability choir, and there are no auditions for new members. You don’t even have to be able to read music. We sing to celebrate the joy (and occasional pain) of living. We learn a lot from each other, and when we get it right, we make quite a nice noise. We certainly have fun trying. The choir has performed in London and round the UK at humanist events, stand-up comedy gigs, private parties, our own concerts, the Edinburgh Free Fringe and on the street. We have even made some recordings and a video, and performed at weddings and memorial services.
