The Choir is known to millions of listeners across the globe through its impressive catalogue of 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. (* This number does not include re-releases).
The College launched its very own record label - 'St John’s, Cambridge' - in 2016, in partnership with Signum Records. The label releases brand new recordings by the Choir of St John's and 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 - contains six contrasting settings of the Evening Canticles, repertoire that plays an important role in the Choir's daily music-making.
