St John's College Choir Cambridge

The Choir of St John’s College, Cambridge, is one of the finest collegiate choirs in the world—known and loved by millions from its recordings, broadcasts and concert tours. During university term it sings six Evensongs a week and Sunday morning Eucharist in Chapel, following the Church of England cathedral tradition. It has fulfilled this role in the life of the College since the 1670s.

The consistency and particular quality of the choir has led to many invitations to perform throughout Europe, America and the Far East. Its renowned ‘continental sound’ sets it apart from most other English cathedral choirs—there is brilliance and vigour as well as control and discipline. The choir has an extraordinary discography: from the Decca/Argo years under George Guest, to the more recent sequence of recordings of English twentieth-century music directed by Christopher Robinson and David Hill.
