Based at St Pancras Parish Church, London, the London Festival of Contemporary Music presents a full programme of services, concerts, recitals, and talks, showcasing the very best in contemporary liturgical music for choir and organ.
This year’s nine-day programme features concerts in London, an away day in Cambridge, six new commissions including a brand new musical setting of the entire order of compline, and premiere performances in services across London from our increasingly international Call for Scores.
