A programme of a cappella music with works by German and international composers from the last 200 years. This is a free concert that will include a retiring collection in aid of St Chad's Sanctury, to support its work in providing practical and welfare support for asylum seekers and refugees.

The Collegium Vocale chamber choir was established in 1994 by Stefan Ludwig in the Parish of St Wolfgang in Munich's Haidhausen district. The Choir's repertoire includes mainly sacred works, focussing on late romantic, 20th century and contemporary a cappella choral works, with music from the Baltic region and British Isles being of particular importance to the Choir's musical director.

Since 2006, Collegium Vocale has undertaken regular concert tours during the Easter holidays and has made a name for itself particularly in Poland, Latvia and England, where, in addition to concerts, this has also included services of Evensong. The Choir has been a guest at many British cathedrals, including Canterbury, Chester, Lincoln, Liverpool, Salisbury and St Albans, and has given concerts in Greenwich, Cambridge, Bangor and Boston.

Other musical highlights include concerts in Riga Cathedral and Dubulti (Latvia), the Church of the Rock in Helsinki (Finland), Kraków and Breslau (Poland), Potsdam (Germany) and Sofia (Bulgaria).

In Munich the Choir performs regularly in the churches of St Wolfgang and St John the Baptist. It also sings in many other churches in and around Munich. The Choir has a personal association with the composers Rihards Dubra, Ugis Praulins, Philip Stopford, Chris Tambling and John Floreen. Its regular accompanist is Professor Andreas Puhani from Munich's Academy of Music and Performing Arts.
