Gospel Choir London
The choir's music is rooted in contemporary gospel, with a unique blend of jazz, soul, funk, latin and “modern classical". There are twenty-five singers at full strength, and the choir is dominated by professionals, many of whom are prominent in London’s jazz, rock and show scenes. In their eight-year existence they have been home to lead singers from West End shows and jazz and soul recording artists, as well as seasoned choral directors, session singers and songwriters. Similarly the band is drawn from London’s deep pool of session and jazz talent.
The shortage of repertoire compatible with the Roman Catholic mass has meant that the choir has commissioned a great deal of original work: five entire mass settings (including one by renowned British jazz guitarist and band leader Dave Okumu), ten psalm tones, over thirty rearrangements of traditional songs (eg. “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross”, “Soul of my Saviour”) and well over fifty entirely new works.
The choir have performed for Westminster Cathedral, Birmingham Cathedral (R4’s Sunday Worship), Revelation TV, BBC Four (TV), the 606 Jazz Club, the Marlborough Jazz Festival, the Pentecost Festival (Leicester Square), Spirit in the City (Soho Square), BBC R4’s Morning Service, BBC London Live, Premier Christian Radio (broadcast and events), with Eric Clapton/Roger Taylor/Jeff Beck for HASTE in Godalming, plus many other churches, schools and community venues.
