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' - 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 - Locus Iste - celebrates the 150th anniversary of St John's College Chapel, and will be released on 26 April 2019.
The Ash Wednesday service in the Chapel of St John's was broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 on 6 March 2019.
The service marks the start of Lent, and featured Byrd's 'Ne irascaris, Domine' as the anthem, with Weelke's Short Service. The Choir also performed Allegri's 'Miserere', without which no service on Ash Wednesday could be complete.
The broadcast is available to listen to online until early April.
