The City of London Choir has a lively recording schedule under the direction of Hilary Davan Wetton. Our most recent CD features a selection of festive favourites. The Nation’s Favourite Christmas Carols, was released in conjunction with Classic FM in December 2017.
In 2016, we recorded Haydn’s Nelson Mass and Mass in Time of War with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and a thrilling line-up of soloists, released by RPO Records.
Flowers of the Field, recorded for Naxos in 2014 with Jeremy Irons, baritone Roderick Williams and the London Mozart Players, went straight to the top of the Specialist Classical Chart in November 2014 and has been widely praised in the national press. Previous recordings include Beethoven’s Der glorreiche Augenblick with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and In Terra Pax: A Christmas Anthology with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra (both for Naxos), plus Holst’s The Coming of Christ and John Gardner’s Cantata for Christmas for EM Records. All have been enthusiastically received, with Der glorreiche Augenblick getting a five-star review from BBC Music Magazine and In Terra Pax reaching no. 2 in the Specialist Classical Chart. We’ve also made guest appearances in Tony Palmer’s critically acclaimed documentaries Holst: In the Bleak Midwinter (2011) and Britten: Nocturne (2013).
