We are proud to host the Emmanuel College Chapel Choir from Cambridge University. The Choir is comprised of about eighteen singers, and has a large repertoire of sacred and secular music: their principal function is to sing one Communion service and one service of Evensong each week—though they also entertain at dinners and undertake various external engagements. Besides these regular commitments in the College, the Choir has a very active profile, both across England and abroad. Over the past year, residencies have included Southwark Cathedral (in London) and St. George’s Chapel (Windsor Castle). The Choir toured in Barcelona in the summer of 2018, and in Poland in 2017; and the Choir will tour in the United States in 2019. Concert engagements in Michaelmas 2018 include Verdi Requiem (with another choir) at the Hampstead Arts Festival (outside of London), and future plans include the first British performance of Stölzel’s Passion.
