Chapel Choir 

The Chapel Choir makes a valuable contribution to the musical life of the whole College and welcomes singers of all faiths or none.  The Organ Scholars take the leading role in running the choir but are supported by the College Lecturer and Advisor in Music, Dr Katie Pardee, who assists with the planning of the Music List for each term and gives organ lessons.  The Chaplain has general oversight.  


Members of the choir receive three free formal dinners a term plus numerous other more informal forms of hospitality and entertainment after each sung service.  The College has recently increase the provision of Choral Bursaries from four to eight (SATB) and increased the bursary to £150 each per year and will also meet the costs of two singing lessons per term for each Choral Bursar.  The Choral Bursars are chosen early in the academic year by the Organ Scholars and Dr Pardee. 


In addition to its vital role in Chapel services, it has recorded three CDs – the third just recently produced as part of the Quincentenary celebrations:  Carols from Corpus:  500 Years of Christmas Music.  Please click here for more information about the Choir’s CDs. 


Past Choir Tours have included Japan, Ross-on-Wye, Canada, Dublin, Skipton and Leeds, and Bordeaux.
