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 Director of Music Stephen Layton.

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 repertoire drawn from both Catholic and Protestant traditions. All services from the Chapel are webcast live at www.trinitycollegechoir.com (where you can also listen to previous services). 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 (subsequently recorded on Hyperion), Haydn’s Nelson Mass with the City of London Sinfonia in Aldeburgh and Cambridge, Poulenc’s Gloria with Britten Sinfonia in Norwich Cathedral (also recorded on Hyperion), and Handel’s Dettingen Te Deum with the Academy of Ancient Music in London and Cambridge (also recorded on Hyperion). The Choir has also performed and recorded two volumes of Handel’s ‘Chandos’ Anthems, with the Academy of Ancient Music and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. Other recordings include a cappella works by Paweł Łukaszewski, albums of new Baltic choral music (‘Baltic Exchange’ and music by Ēriks Ešenvalds), and David Briggs’ Mass for Notre Dame, Britten’s A Ceremony of Carols and Saint Nicolas, and a Gramophone Award-winning album of Howells. ‘Beyond all mortal dreams’, 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.
