The Copenhagen Royal Chapel Choir Among the oldest European musical traditions are the cathedral choirs and their choir schools. The Copenhagen Royal Chapel Choir is the only representative of this tradition in Scandinavia. Founded in 1924 by Mogens Wöldike the choir quickly developed into a full-time institution with the boys (like the girls in the Sankt Annæ Girls Choir) receiving their general education alongside a full musical and vocal training in Sankt Annæ Gymnasium. Since 1959 the choir has been resident at the Copenhagen Cathedral, and as part of its duties it performs on state occasions and during royal visits abroad. The boys also sing at High Mass and Vespers in the Cathedral.

Since Ebbe Munk became director of the choir in 1991 they have given concerts at major concert halls, cathedrals and festivals allover the world. Benjamin Britten, Ernest Ansermet, Raphael Kubelik, Giuseppe Sinopoli, Andrew Davies, Sir Charles Mackerras, Christopher Hogwood, Giuseppe Sinopoli, Vladimir Ashkenazy, and many others have conducted the CRCC Contemporary Danish composers including Poul Ruders, Palle Mikkelborg and Per Nørgård have written works especially for them.

Le Figaro has placed the choir alongside the Vienna Boys Choir and King's College, Cambridge as one of the finest in Europe. They work regularly with the Copenhagen Philharmonic and the Danish Radio Symphony Orchestra and have made numerous CD recordings on EMI, Chandos, Decca, Telefunken, Danica Records and Dacapo.
