London Voices (sometimes known as London Sinfonietta Voices) is a London-based choral ensemble led by Terry Edwards, who founded the ensemble in 1973. They have been involved in numerous recordings of operas and soundtracks including The Cook The Thief His Wife & Her Lover, Ravenous, the Star Wars prequel trilogy, Lucia di Lammermoor, The Lord of the Rings series, the Harry Potter series, Heavy Metal, The Mission, Enemy at the Gates, La traviata, and The Passion of the Christ. They have recorded with such diverse artists as Luciano Pavarotti, Dave Brubeck, Amy Grant, and Queen.
As few as three or as many as 150 singers can be part of the group at one time, and more than one unit of London Voices can be deployed to perform at various venues. Their official website does not attempt to catalog all of the singers who have worked with the group.

Famous quotes containing the words voices and/or london:
“The sound of tireless voices is the price we pay for the right to hear the music of our own opinions. But there is also, it seems to me, a moment at which democracy must prove its capacity to act. Every man has a right to be heard; but no man has the right to strangle democracy with a single set of vocal chords.”
—Adlai Stevenson (19001965)
“Oh, London is a mans town, theres power in the air;
And Paris is a womans town, with flowers in her hair;
And its sweet to dream in Venice, and its great to study Rome;
But when it comes to living, there is no place like home.”
—Henry Van Dyke (18521933)
