London Gallery Quire

Welcome to the London Gallery Quire!

We perform West Gallery Music, the hymns and psalmody heard in parish churches and nonconformist chapels during the Georgian period, from about 1700-1850. It is often vigorous, poignant, and very enjoyable to sing.

We give concerts and sing for church services. You will find details of our upcoming events here.


Come and hear us at our next event, which is shown below.

If you are potentially interested in singing or playing with us, visit our next rehearsal (no charge for first time) on
Wednesday 6th March at St Michael Paternoster Royal, near Cannon Street Station in London.


We welcome new singers and players of any acoustic orchestral or folk instrument !

No audition required. You will need to be able to read the (fairly simple) music. Take a look at some of our pieces that you can download from our Repertoire page

Next Performance: Sunday 23rd June 2024 5pm Evensong

at St Mary the Virgin, Church Lane, Stapleford Abbotts, RM4 1ES.

Next Get Together: Saturday 20th July 2024 Afternon

This is our regular end-of-season summer party, where we sing for fun lots of lovely pieces from our repertoire, and enjoy food and company, and individual performances by our talented members.
Friends and family are warmly welcome. If you would like to come please email phil@lgq.org.uk.


Change of rehearsal venue from September.

From September 2024 we need to rehearse in a difference venue, as our previous location will no longer be available.
We will meet at the same time on alternate Wednesdays. Watch this space and email for announcements, and let us know if you are aware of any potentially suitable centrally located space.

If you are interested to have a concert or a service using West Gallery music please get in touch. If you are interested to sing or play with us we would love to hear from you, please email us at admin@lgq.org.uk.

Check out our repertoire of over 680 pieces in our searchable index here.
