High Renaissance: Choral Polyphony from the Low Countries
Founded in 1981 by James Wood, New London Chamber Choir is one of Europe’s foremost vocal ensembles. It has given many world and British premières and, under its current musical director, Matthew Hamilton, continues to commission and promote new work.
New London Chamber Choir has enjoyed close working relationships with composers including Jonathan Harvey, Mauricio Kagel, György Kurtág, György Ligeti, Toru Takemitsu, and Iannis Xenakis – several of whom have written works especially for it. NLCC has worked with ensembles including Ensemble InterContemporain, London Sinfonietta, Champ d’Action, Ictus, Amadinda, Raschèr Saxophone Quartet, Kreutzer Quartet and Percussive Rotterdam, as well as the Michael Clark, Mark Morris and Rambert dance companies and Ivan Putrov’s Men in Motion.
