The Choir of Queens’ College Cambridge is a mixed choir of up to twenty-four singers and two organ scholars directed by Nicholas Morris, Director of Music, Bye-Fellow, and sometime Queens' Organ Scholar.
Combining high-quality music making, ambitious and wide-ranging repertoire and commitment to detail with a friendly atmosphere and vibrant social life, the choir is an ideal environment for talented musicians who want to find a fulfilling balance between the commitments of a Cambridge degree and a high-calibre choral experience. The Choir sings three choral services each week during Full Term: Evensong on Sundays and Wednesdays, and Compline on Fridays. There are also occasional additional services and events, for special Feast Days, Commemorations of Benefactors, weddings and memorials.
Regular cathedral visits and recitals in Cambridge and beyond supplement the Choir's core duties in the Chapel. Recent trips have included Hong Kong (2014), Hungary (2015), France (2016), USA (2017), Greece (2018), and France (2019), and the Choir plans to visit the Netherlands in 2023. The Choir also regularly sings joint services with other choirs, both as hosts and guests. The Choir has a large discography, gaining critical acclaim for recent recordings Flight of Song, Songs of Heaven and Earth, and For the Wings of a Dove, and in 2019 the Choir recorded a series of new pieces by UK composers. The Chapel Choir regularly performs new music by both early-career and established composers.
Services are held in the College Chapel and all are welcome to attend. They take place at the following times, during University Full Term only:
