The LMC

Choral music in England's most beautiful settings

Since 2007, the LMC has been promoting traditional liturgical music through its programme of cathedral-based singing courses. We provide opportunities for amateur singers and professional musicians working in the field of choral music. We promote the work of young composers through commissions, performances and publication and offer bursaries for full-time students.

The LMC’s events are aimed at accomplished choral singers and offer splendid opportunities to perform in some of England’s most beautiful settings. Experienced church musicians are introduced to new works and techniques and will participate in a rigorous programme of rehearsals and services.

The Canterbury Course 2017

Image of Canterbury Cathedral

 

This magnificent cathedral is one of the oldest and most important Christian structures in England. Founded in 597, the cathedral was completely rebuilt from 1070 - 1077 and significantly rebuilt in 1174 in Gothic style with significant extensions to accommodate pilgrims visiting the shrine of Thomas Becket, the archbishop who was murdered in the cathedral in 1170.

Our next choral course will be based at Canterbury Cathedral and will run from 12th-17th February 2017. For further information, click here.
