Alumni

The Choir of St John's College is proud to have a large number of successful alumni who now pursue active music careers. A large number of Choral Scholars progress to become professional singers, while a healthy proportion of former Organ Scholars now enjoy solo recital careers, or have become Directors of Music at the leading Cathedrals and Choirs around the world; and the musical discipline, professionalism and teamwork which Choristers learn at St John's often leads to scholarships at major schools and flourishing musical careers.

Below is a selection of the many former Choristers, Choral and Organ Scholars who are now professional musicians. If you are an alumnus and a professional musician please send us a link to your website and we will add your details.

A Meditation on the Passion of Christ is a service of music and readings reflecting on the Passion of Christ. This year the service features music by Byrd, Purcell, Weelkes and MacMillan, as well as the final piece of a triptych of works written for the choir by Joanna Marsh.

Magnificat 4 includes two commissions written specially for the Choir of St John's College; Jonathan Dove's 2022 canticle setting St John's Service, and Judith Weir's 2011 service of the same name.

Winner of the 2008 Ivor Novello Award for classical music, Jonathan Dove CBE has composed a broad range of works and is one of the most successful British composers today. 

Jonathan was kind enough to share insights into his St John's Service, the compositional process, and what we can look forward to in the future.

The commitment, projection and natural energy of this choir have never failed to inspire me
