Sun Stone from Cantos Sagrados (James MacMillan): London Oriana Choir at TEDxHousesofParliament

The London Oriana Choir is one of Britain's leading choral groups and one of the most exciting in London. Since 1996 it has been under the directorship of David Drummond, who has further developed the choir with his vision, innovative teaching ideas and new repertoire. The choir has performed in all of London's major concert halls, churches and cathedrals, including the Southbank Centre, the Barbican, the Royal Albert Hall, St Martin-in-the-Fields, St James's Piccadilly, St Paul's Cathedral and Southwark Cathedral. It has also performed at Abbey Road Studios, the London O2 Arena and Hampton Court Palace. As well as its own concert series, the London Oriana Choir is often invited to sing for other organisations including BBC television. The choir has produced four commercial CD recordings, including a world premi?re of Sir Henry Walford Davies's cantata Everyman with the Kensington Symphony Orchestra, which received Editor's Choice awards in bothGramophone magazine and International Record Review. In April 2008 another world premi?re recording was released, Armstrong Gibbs's choral symphony Odysseus with the BBC Concert Orchestra. The choir has also recently recorded a CD of Christmas music which features exciting new arrangements of old favourites and new works. The CD, Nativitie, will be available to buy later in 2012 from the choir's website.
