Choirs


  • Chamber Choir is an auditioned choir for senior pupils, singing a wide repertoire of mainly unaccompanied music.
  • Chapel Choir numbering some 50 pupils, is a group of auditioned singers from Year 7 and above who come together to provide high quality music for services and concerts throughout the year. Rehearsals are held three times a week and the choir sings at the weekly Wednesday morning service in addition to other special services and occasions. The choir toured to Paris in February 2013 and Prague February 2015. A CD of Christmas music entitled Lux was recorded in the college chapel in 2013.
  • Choral Society is open to all members and friends of the college community. The Choral Society meets at certains times of the year on Monday evenings at 6.30 pm to rehearse large-scale works. In recent years they have combined with other college choirs, as well as the Brecon Singers (the town choral society), to perform works such as Carmina Burana by Carl Orff (April 2012), Verdi’s Requiem (April 2013) Vivaldi’s Gloria (November 2013); Rutter's Requiem (November 2014), Mozart's Vespera solennes de confessore (March 2015), using professional orchestral musicians and soloists.  In April 2016, the 475th Anniversary of Christ College, a special convert was held at RWCMD in Cardiff, where the combines choirs performed Ahoy! sing for the Mary Rose by Alexander L'Estrange with the composer's Call me Al quintet and the composer himself at the piano.
