St. John's College Choir, Cambridge

The St. John's College Choir has existed since the 1670s, and even then it represented a continuation of a tradition of religious music at St. John's College, Cambridge. The Choir's 16 Choristers and four Probationers enter by passing voice trials at age seven to eight, and all receive education at St. John's College School, located on the St. John's College campus at Cambridge. The College School itself has 430 boy and girl students up to age 13.

The Choristers and Probationers sing the soprano parts in the College Choir. The rest of the singers (altos, tenors, and basses) are undergraduate students of the College, termed "Choral Students," and are, therefore also members of Cambridge University itself. They are not necessarily music students. They remain in the choir until they take their Cambridge Degrees at the end of three years, and gain their positions by auditions.

The main duty of the College Choir is to sing the daily Church of England services in the College Chapel throughout the University term, including Evensong six days a week and Sung Eucharist on Sunday mornings.

The choir travels widely, and broadcasts regularly on the BBC. Annual traditions include broadcasts of its Advent Carol Service, Passiontide Meditation, and its Ash Wednesday Choral Evensong which includes Allegri's Miserere.

The choir has made over 100 recordings and is one of the most respected among British choirs of its type.
