Trinity College Choir Cambridge

The Choir of Trinity College Cambridge comprises around thirty choral scholars and two organ scholars, all of whom are ordinarily undergraduates of the College, under a Director of Music.

The College’s choral tradition dates back to the fourteenth century, when former Chapel Royal choristers studied in King’s Hall which later became part of Trinity College. During term the Choir’s main focus is the singing of the liturgy in the College Chapel, exploring a repertoire drawn from both Catholic and Protestant traditions. Outside term the Choir’s programme of performances and recordings has included a BBC broadcast of Bach’s Christmas Oratorio with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment in London, Haydn’s Nelson Mass with the City of London Sinfonia in Aldeburgh and Cambridge, Poulenc’s Gloria with Britten Sinfonia in Norwich Cathedral (and recorded on Hyperion CDA67623), and Handel’s Dettingen Te Deum and ‘Chandos Anthems’ with the Academy of Ancient Music in London and Cambridge (and recorded on, respectively, Hyperion CDA67678 and CDA67737). The Choir has also recorded a cappella works by Polish composer Pawel Lukaszewski (CDA67639), a disc of new choral music from the Baltic region, ‘Baltic Exchange’ (CDA67747), the Mass for Notre Dame and other works for choir and organ by David Briggs (CDA67808) and Herbert Howells’s Requiem (CDA67914). ‘Beyond all mortal dreams’ (CDA67832), a disc of American a cappella works, was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2012. The Choir’s programme of tours has taken it to destinations in Europe, the USA, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Peru.
