About the Choir

Còisir Lunnainn was founded in 1891 and is proud to be the world's oldest Scottish Gaelic choir.

We rehearse on Tuesdays at 7:30pm at Crown Court Church hall in Covent Garden, London. During the pandemic we moved our rehearsals online, but are now back in person with the option of online participation for those who can't make it into central London.

In honour of our 130th anniversary year, we adopted a new motto: Ceòl—Càirdeas—Cliù, which loosely translates as 'Music—Friendship—Renown'.

Our motto reflects our core principles of music and friendship, with an additional commitment to sharing our singing more widely.
