Chapel Choir

Take a look at the choir website!

The Choir of Queens’ College Cambridge is one of the leading mixed choirs in Cambridge, directed by Nicholas Morris, Director of Music, By-Fellow, and sometime Queens' Organ Scholar. It is formed of twenty-four singers and two organ scholars, and run by the Organ Scholars in conjunction with the Chaplain.

The Chapel Choir combines high quality music-making, ambitious and wide-ranging repertoire and commitment to detail with a friendly atmosphere and vibrant social life.  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. A new programme of concerts and tours is in development following the disruption during the COVID pandemic.

Recent highlights in the Choir's schedule include recitals in Cambridge, concerts in London, recently Mozart’s Requiem and Handel’s Dixit Dominus at St. Martin-in-the-Fields with the Brandenburg Sinfonia as part of the 2018 Brandenburg Festival, and cathedral evensongs which in recent years have included Westminster Abbey and Ely Cathedral. The choir has also performed in Paris and Angers (2019), Greece (2018), the USA (2017), France (2016), Hungary (2015), Hong Kong (2014) and Germany (2013).
