The University of London Church Choir (ULCC) is a choir of graduates and students who live and work in and around London. We sing church services at places in and around London where there is either no choir, or where the regular choir is unable to perform. We aim to sing a service or concert every three to four weeks during the University term.
"...the sung delivery was fantastic. The Howells in particular was heavenly."

We are currently recruiting all voices - come along and try us. There are no formal auditions...
Firstly, our first choir event was a study day (sounds boring? It really wasn't you know) on Saturday October the 22nd with the ridiculously talented and edutaining Nicholas O'Neill where we be sang and learnt about English liturgical music and how it changed with (and, at times, sternly resisted) the political and religious changes of the 16th century.
The day following, Sunday October the 23rd, we were at Guildford Cathedral to sing evensong. The Cathedral motif continued on the first Sunday in November where we returned to Southwark Cathedral to sing the evening traditional rite Eucharist.
From now until the end of the year, the choir will give in to more seasonal pressures, first with two Advent services, the first in Twickenham on Sunday the 27th of November at 6pm (please note changed start time), the second in the Chapel of St Mary Undercroft, Palace of Westminster on Tuesday the 29th of November. Both are open to the public but please be aware that you'll probably have to leave plenty time at the Palace of Westminster to get through security. Please note that the time of the Westmister service has now been clarified as 6:30pm - however, if you're planning on coming along, please leave lots of time to get through the security.
Lastly in this term, we're singing a service of Christmas carols in St Philip the Apostle, Tottenham, a new church for the choir, on the 17th.
We're very much looking forward to seeing you at any or all of these. Come listen to us or, better still, join us. Rehearsals have, of course, already begun but don't worry and do get in touch. We'd love to hear from you.
Thanks for stopping by
