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.

A recent LQG performance

Sunday 2nd April was the occasion of our founder Francis Roads' final concert as Music Director after which he handed over to Phil Price who with some trepidation takes over the mission.
We are pleased that Francis continues to be an active member of the Quire.
