Chapel Choir

St Edmund’s College Chapel Choir reflects the ethos of the Sunday Parish Mass, and is open to all. There is no audition or need for previous singing experience, but an ability to read music is desirable.

The Choir sings for Mass on Sunday mornings during term, and often in the vacation as well, immediately preceded by a rehearsal; additional rehearsals are arranged from time to time. Members range from those who have never sung in a choir before, to accomplished musicians.

Repertoire includes sung Mass settings and Communion motets and anthems, as well as Latin and English chant. Members of the Choir receive singing lessons from the Director of Chapel Music & Organist, Louisa Denby, as well as from external singing teachers, and benefit from other musical opportunities both within College and outside. In July 2016 the Choir joined with musicians from St Edmund Hall (Oxford), St Edmund's School (Canterbury), and St Edmund’s College (Ware), for concerts and services in the Abbey of Pontigny, France - the final resting place of St Edmund of Abingdon.

The Director of Chapel Music welcomes enquiries from prospective members of the Choir at any stage of the academic year. She can be contacted via chapel-music@st-edmunds.cam.ac.uk.
