New London Singers are one of London’s most dynamic chamber choirs. Their repertoire includes music that is both broad and adventurous, including sacred and secular, Renaissance to contemporary. Concerts range from great choral works to ambitious and exciting a cappella performances. They strive to perform memorable music of the highest quality. Conducted by Ivor Setterfield, New London Singers perform regularly at St Martin-in-the-Fields and Kings Place, London.
Trafalgar Sinfonia was founded in the early 90s by its Musical Director, Ivor Setterfield. Formerly known as the New London Soloists Orchestra, it has built a reputation as one of London’s most dynamic and accomplished ensembles. This extremely versatile group now has an international following and has performed a diverse repertoire at most of London’s major venues including the Royal Albert Hall, the Barbican Centre, the Southbank Centre and Cadogan Hall. In addition to its reputation as an outstanding solo ensemble, Trafalgar Sinfonia has close links with choral music and regularly appears in an accompanying role with a number of choirs.
Trafalgar Sinfonia has recorded two CDs, the first with New London Singers, featuring the music of Vivaldi. Most recently it has recorded a selection of English String Music including the Vaughan Williams Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis.
