Under the direction of Professor David Rowland
St Bart’s is pleased to host in concert one of Cambridge's finest mixed-voice ensembles. Recent CD recordings and concert reviews stand as testament to its ability and broad repertoire.BBC Music Magazine: "fresh voices, precise pitching and chording, expert pacing."
Christ's has enjoyed a rich musical history. Lady Margaret Beaufort, the college Foundress, left a bequest in support of College music on her death in 1509. The Chapel Choir was originally made up of male voices, the upper parts being sung by trebles. Before Christ's College admitted women in 1979, sopranos and altos from other colleges sang the upper parts, and the choral sound developed through “the quality of the female undergraduates who bring precision, sensitivity, and increasingly mature musicianship to the upper line.”. Church Times
The Choir maintains an extraordinarily broad repertoire, ranging from complex renaissance polyphony to challenging contemporary works. All members benefit from regular vocal training by excellent singing teachers paid for by the College. Former Christ's choristers and organists are professional singers and musicians, performing with ensembles such as The Sixteen and Ex Cathedra.
Programme will include works by Parry, Tallis and Howells
