ROYAL HOLLOWAY CHOIR, UNIVERSITY OF LONDON

Royal Holloway is one of the UK’s top research-intensive university institutions, acknowledged worldwide for high quality research and an excellent record in teaching quality. Based just outside London in Egham, Surrey, Royal Holloway is one of the larger colleges of the University of London and has 7,500 students working with internationally renowned scholars. Founded in 1886 the College is housed in an outstanding Victorian building inspired in design by a grand French château. Contained within this Founder's Building is a beautiful gilded chapel, with sculptures by Ceccardo Fucigna, as well as the Picture Gallery, which houses The Royal Holloway Collection, one of the world's most important and finest collections of Victorian paintings.

The Chapel Choir was created at the time of the foundation of Royal Holloway in 1886. Originally a choir for women’s voices, the Choir now comprises twenty Choral Scholars of mixed voices. Past scholars have gone on to sing in opera (WNO and ENO) and in ensembles including The Sixteen, The Tallis Scholars, The Gabrieli Consort, Tenebrae, and The Clerkes of Oxenford. Past members of the Choir also include international soloists Dame Felicity Lott and Susan Bullock. In recent years the Choir has made numerous CD recordings and over 25 tours to most European countries where they have been featured in a number of music festivals. The Choir is also regularly asked to sing services in St Paul’s Cathedral, Westminster Abbey and St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle as well as broadcast for BBC Radio.
