Magnificat 2

The Choir is known to millions of listeners across the globe through its impressive catalogue of over 100 recordings. Since its first release in 1958, the Choir's output has spanned centuries of musical composition and received critical acclaim under successive Directors of Music.

In 2016, the College launched its very own 'St John's Cambridge' label in partnership with Signum Records. The label releases brand new recordings by the Choir of St John's as well as students and alumni of the College.

The label has received critical acclaim, receiving a BBC Music Magazine Award in 2017 for its debut release, DEO. The Choir's latest recording - Magnificat 2 - features nine settings of the Evening Canticles, sung daily at Evensong. The recording features Howells Collegium Regale and Julian Anderson's St John's Service, as well as settings by Berkeley, Jackson, Pärt, Swayne & Walton.
