The Choir



One of the finest mixed-voice collegiate choirs in Britain

Created at the time of the foundation of Royal Holloway in 1886, the choir was originally only for women's voices. The mixed choir now comprises 24 choral scholars, which are generously funded by Banco Santander as a part of the Santander Universities Scheme. These choral scholars undertake a busy schedule of weekly services, as well as concerts, international tours, recordings and broadcasts.

The Choir is now considered to be one of the finest mixed-voice collegiate choirs in Britain. Their recordings on the Hyperion label have attracted top reviews from all major music publications. Equally at home on the concert platform, the choir gives around 50 concerts a year with a particular specialism in music from the late renaissance and contemporary music, especially from the Baltic States. The choir also benefits from a unique training programme in collaboration with the King's Singers - the College's ensemble in residence.

Royal Holloway is also the only university that still maintains a tradition of daily sung morning services.
